celebrate life 
celebrate it today 
the sky the upward 
air the blustery 
blue breezing your 

celebrate your breath 
your life and love 
your fragility your
gorgeous blue eyes

your strength and heart 
of soul, your childlike 
mind, all the 
pain gone down and in

all the good and true 
singing in your ears 
celebrate that 
you are here that

you have won who 
knows how many 
more years, that 
you have conquered the

dark heart, the 
horror place, and 
walk your days, a
mermaid on dry land

the seaweed taste 
on your tongue 
savouring of all you had 
planned that is

hoped and gone - you 
won anyway: time 
and sun, walking, breathing
moving on

celebrate life
the next step
the heavy heart
the part that you must play

one day the clarity will 
rise and reflect 
your two blue eyes 
all you are

and all you've been
will be there
in gold sun

the high blue the far 
tor of your being 
that you owned 
and climbed

and claimed
against all the world
