celebrate life 
celebrate it today 
the sky upward 
air blustery 
blue breezing your 
celebrate your breath 
life, love 
your fragility and 
gorgeous blue eyes
your strength and heart 
soul, 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 
mermaid on dry land
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 you play
one day clarity will 
rise, reflect 
your two blue eyes 
all you are

and all you've been
will be there
in gold sun
the high far 
tor of being 
you owned 
and climbed
and claimed
against all the world
