Toasting to a Better Time

To that better time, when smiling was because you were happy to see a friend, and tomorrow was so long away.

To a simpler time, when your friends were just as giddy and silly as you were.

To a more peaceful time, when you really did not know there were so many bad people in the world that did not like you because you were you.

To that time, we all want in our hearts, a time forever locked away. But, open that time for your children, because they have that time now. Do not sully their laughter with “the past”.

Let them laugh and smile.

Just like you did, in that “better time.”
