A toast to a Special Friend, and all Friends, Starting Anew or About To, and the family and friends who support their journey
Comes after an end,
Like moving from stranger to neighbor to friend.
As if clearing old habits and pathways and space
Leads one to new hopes, ideas…and grace.
Time can reshape itself, and so can we.
Something must let go, so you can go free.
Not looking behind means you see ahead
To find where those other possibilities led.
Though you change in bearing, we are all still here
Keeping each other grounded and clear.
This is your beginning; so let’s raise a glass.
All things must evolve just as all things must pass.
