One More Glass

July 30, 2008
By Kathryn Todd, Lumberton, NJ

Here it is
Let’s raise our glasses
Because we’ve fallen in

And can’t see this through

I heard someone said
This place was safe to go
When you work this hard

And hurt as much as we do

We took it bad
When we loved and had no escape
Our hearts they thought they were worth it to break

And at least there’s nothing left to prove

No one guessed
We’d lose the first round
And fight to fail in the end

And I suppose one just shouldn’t assume.

You expect
To fall sometimes when you’re fighting for the truth
And giving without ever taking

And still, I did it all for you.

Here it is
Drink one last glass
And fall right in

And it seems there’s nothing left to lose.
