Here’s to the friend who always smiles,
The mom who can’t stay mad,
The girl who says she’s fine while tears are falling.
Here’s to all those trying to make everyone’s day while theirs are caving in.
Here’s to the little boys who’ll never grow up,
The waitress absentmindedly singing to herself,
The artist sketching scenes in his mind.
Here’s to the dreamers.
Here’s to the neighbor’s flying a flag for a friend who’s been lost,
The man with scars of a battle long gone but not forgotten,
The family table with one empty chair.
Here’s to the ones who gave up everything.
Here’s to the ones a little left of center,
The one’s who’ll never say die,
The one’s with stories that went unwritten,
These everyday strangers are heroes in my eyes.
