This poem was written as a reflection not to let life go by…So many of us take each day for granted..or the people we love for granted…and then one day we look back..and all we are left with is an empty space which can not be filled…
It’s a reminder to do what you love…even if no one believes in you…for to do the opposite may take you to a place where one day you will toast to no one…for who you were…all your passion..your idealism..your strength… got lost long ago…

Lift up your cup filled with the finest of wines…
Its warmth gets lost on your cold sensual lips..
Pretend you have won…
Smile in victory while your bowels boil..
they boil with guilt which feels like fire..
let the guilt of your whole life flood..
let it overwhelm and consume you…
You will never return to what once was…
You are no longer you…
A toast for what once was…
Years carried off your sweetness and loyalty..
resentment won the battle…
You have lost your way…
There is no way back…
Come on!…let’s toast today…
drink the poison of your bitterness…
Taste your life served on shattered glass…
Drink now..hurry…for tomorrow will be too late…
Tomorrow..all will taste like pain and frustration…
Do not break your glass…
It will not erase what you have done…
It will not erase your actions and cowardice..
All you will see will be blood shed for your treason…
Night will fall, and will avenge what you did to your sun…
Your life now spilled…with no light in sight…
A mantle of agony succumbs your mind…
Raise your glass and toast…
Intoxicate your veins and relax…
Numb that which can not be numb..
Your sorrows..your pain..
Keep toasting for today is your turn..
Celebrate how your life is gone…
Drink while you have strength…
For everything has an end…
