we raise our mugs

24 Dec

tonight is the night for

a familiar tale

told beside the fire

an old refrain

we repeat each year

we raise our mugs

to this precious gift of life

so fragile

we should never take our lives

for granted

and yet we do

it’s the same old story

although the names and the places

might change
