A Toast to 2013

It's New Year's Eve and I'm working
on getting myself a buzz.
Bailey's can sometimes get me there
but rye and ginger definitely does.

I'm not much of a drinker.
You could say that I'm a cheap drunk.
But once in awhile a little nip
can get me out of a funk.

So I'll toast to the year  that was
and the one that's about to be.
I hope the new year will be kind
to my friends, my family and me.

    Nice poem. I hope it will too. Sometimes I say - I toast for what could have been and wasn't. I hope this year brings us many blessings. Lucilla
