Another round of memories — John A. Reyes

In the company of January’s silence,

I raise a glass in remembrance

to who I used to be.

Drunk off flashbacks,

I timidly raise a glass—

Another round of memories.

 

Here’s to the smiles I’ve lost

and all the pain I’ve caused—

I raise my glass to you.

To all the future misadventures

and other endeavors

I’m about to do.

 

May the years of mistakes

show me a better way

to be the ideal me.

Let me fill this glass again—

happiness, sadness…Fill it to the brim!

Another round of memories

please?
