Here’s To…

Here’s to
the things we wish
we could do again,
to the ache we get
from reliving those moments
from the sidelines,
through hindsight
that makes those memories
oh so tragically sweet.

It’s sad to know
we can’t go back,
we can’t be
who we were
or who we thought
we’d be,
but we must celebrate anyway.

Raise your glass
to those minutes
where your greatness
where you were
the star
instead of the spectator
because you have many years
to watch
from the fringes,
seeing greatness
move further
and further away,
so breathe in the nostalgia
so you don’t lose the beauty
you so briefly held.

And perhaps,
if you’re lucky,
you might get to
hold it again.
