Here’s to you,
obvious minefield.

Here’s to you, dark clouds
and silver 

Here’s to your reputation,
established before you begin —

but also to your falling in love again
with possibility.  

Here’s to where you stand on today
today, here’s to stepping up

to a stand you’ll take tomorrow
for tomorrow.

Here’s to your yesterday. 
May it be yesterday. May it stay yesterday;

may it remind and inform but never,
ever repeat.
