celebrate life cause you are alive today


Sipping life slowly leaves a sweet aftertaste

of such dear memories saved for a rainy day.

Life after all is there to enjoy and not waste

in trivialities meant to pass by and not stay.


Sunrises are the best in the brightest morning

opening my eyes to a clarity left from dreams

with sounds and vivid images my day adorning

in my mind I prepare for another day schemes.


Reasons to be alive are many before hidden

in shadows chosen to obscure my gentle mind

if youthful days were left empty or unridden

now later at my age I enjoy the beauty I find.


So let’s toast for more of our wonderful years

and sip life slowly tasting every single sunrise

let’s leave behind the questions and the fears

willing to embrace life as we look up and rise.
