An Ode to Life

poetry

Life is a celebration, so let’s raise our glasses,
Even when our journey feels slow as molasses.
Thank you to all of the people who are there when I need them the most,
To you I dedicate this simple toast.
I appreciate everything about you and what you do for me,
And how you’ve helped me on this journey across the sea.
I am also grateful for getting through hell,
Including all of those times I wanted to yell.
Those are the moments that made me tough and strong;
The moments that helped me see where I belong.
Dante Alighieri believed you must walk through hell to get to paradise,
For some of us that may happen often, or maybe just twice.
So let’s raise our glasses and keep a positive attitude;
Always fill your hearts with love and never-ending gratitude.
