RAISE A GLASS

Raise a glass

A toast to life

To striving to survive

To the numerous times

Numerous times in the past

When we fought the good fight

The good fight to remain alive

Remember that moment you could have died

Well, cheers, it’s all in the past

Cheers

Raise a glass

A toast to the tests

To the mountains we walked

For teaching us to find strength

The bitter, major challenges

Brewing us to cope with stress

Giving us lessons from experience

Rejuvenation comes with its influence

And revelation of some fake friends

Cheers

Raise a glass

A toast to things

To things money can’t buy

To absolute peace of mind

The richest people can testify

Genuine happiness is hard to find

Power and affluence can’t fully satisfy

Good health that doesn’t have a price

Once lost, nothing could ever suffice

Cheers

Raise a glass

A toast to the people

To the friends and family we’re blessed with

Shoulders to cry on, attentive ears listening

The support network to our entire being

For the guidance when situations get tricky

For the laughter and unconditional loving

For the inside jokes and pranking stupidly

Forever-cherished and countless memories

Cheers

Raise a glass

A toast to the gift of the gospel

True words spreading across generations

For instruction, corrections and conviction

Breathed out by the One and Only God

The lamp to our feet on dark paths

Ever-shining; full of authority and powerful

To sustain, shield and teach us through life cycles
