Cheers to the past and its influence on the present
Cheers to the tales that make us
The aches and pains, of flesh and bone and those of the heart
Cheers to all that has ever made you cry
Cheers to time as it forever speeds by
Never stopping, never slowing down
Always urging us onto the next one
Ready or not, it keeps moving
Irrespective of your innermost thoughts
Cheers to today and all that i am
And to the decisions that make me
The choices whose results only the future holds in its hands
Cheers to what i can see
Cheers to what i do hear
Cheers to the data my senses receive
Cheers to making sense out of all the confusion
The raging tumult that defines this time and age
Cheers to seeing beyond it all to a time and a place where all will be truely well
Cheers to the future and all that it holds in stock for me.
Cheers to the tasks ahead of me
Cheers to love, may i find you quick
Cheers to success, may we never part
But go from glory to glory
To greater glory till the end of my earthly story
May it be a great one for generations yet unborn
To venerate and be inspired from
Most importantly, cheers to the Creator
Without whom i would not be
Cheers to the one who is able to make all my dreams come true
Cheers to the love of God my father towards me.
Cheers to the confident assurance in his ability
The finality of his utterances is all the assurance i need.
Cheers to me!
