Here's To...You?





Here’s to the smilers and kind second-milers
Who give without motive of recompense
Here’s to the lover of people, not pleasure
Who don’t measure treasure with dollars and cents

Here’s to hands calloused with honor of helping
Here’s to the palace of children and noise
Here’s to the humblest, happiest humans
Here’s to the lap full of wee girls and boys

Here’s to the faithful with little to speak of
Here’s to the wielder of words wise and true
Here to the makers of peace and not war, love
Here’s to a wonderful, beautiful …you?
