“Pour me a drink as I celebrate my life.
I am alive. I am present. I am here.
My presence is the light of the world.
I look in the mirror and I’m in love with
who I see. I see a child of God with a
God that’s in love with me. I’ve been
distraught and depressed, but I overcame.
I continued to get back up after being
knocked down and now my feet remain
planted and I stand upright, refusing
to be knocked down ever again.
Pour me a drink as I commemorate my life.
For a time well spent and a job well done.
I did what I had to do and I did it with flair
and style. I didn’t let anyone talk down on
or ridicule me. I knew who I was and I knew
where I was going. Now that I’m here,
I am happy.
So pour me a drink and I’ll raise my glass.
“Here’s to me, for finding my purpose and
moving pass the past. Cheers.””
