Here’s to how it should have been.
To that kiss we had once in a dream.
To that lily, white, tall and green.
To that waterfall, that set the scene.
Here’s to how it should have gone.
To my family’s hearts, you would have won.
To your sisters and I, getting along.
To the morning texts, sent at dawn.
Here’s to all the things we prayed.
To the fairytale our story made,
To the happy ending, years delayed,
To the wedding vows, we’d one day trade.
Here’s to everything we lost.
To our unknown fate, in the air tossed,
To what began when our paths crossed,
To friendship, perhaps the greatest cost
Here’s to giving up the fight.
To all those feelings that weren’t quite right,
To expectations too great a height,
To trying too hard to change our plight.
In the end, it had to be,
The way we’ve left it,
So, here’s to you.
And here’s to me.
Here’s to letting go of we.
