Another round of Memories

In the company of January’s silence,

I raise a glass in remembrance

to who I used to be.

Drunk off flashbacks,

I timidly raise a glass—

Another round of memories.

 

Here’s to the smiles I’ve lost

and all the pain I’ve caused—

I raise my glass to you.

To all the future misadventures

and other endeavors

I’m about to do.

 

May the years of mistakes

show me a better way

to be the ideal me.

Let me fill this glass again—

happiness, sadness…Fill it to the brim!

Another round of memories

please?

    Indeed! I raise my glass to another set of sad moments, happy endings, regrets, lessons learned and everything that life is about.
    Lovely piece, John 🙂

    “May all the years of mistakes
    show me a better way
    to the ideal me.”

      😅 Part of my New Year Eve’s tradition is to drink a bottle of wine. I had my notebook nearby and this was the result. 🤣

        Just one bottle? ;)) I used to love to quote Rumi, “give me more wine, or leave me alone.” 😆
        Wonderful result John 👏👍

        Funny, so was I. 😂
        But New Year’s was a special occasion after all… usually with a few peeps around 🥂🍾;))
        This year was quieter.
