Here’s a toast to eternal dreams,
the candle bends and flickers,
the gale it chills and lashes,
the night it looms and covers,
the stars they wink upon us,
the moon it watches over,
the glass is almost empty yet oh so full..
The moon says “drink to me in my lofty sky,
drink to her in your mind’s eye,
use me as a tracer light,
seek me as your bearing tonight..
we navigate this starry sea,
we contemplate catastrophe,
yet never failing you and me”
for we have mutual empathy”
