To all the authors, who've come and gone.

To all the readers, big and small.

To all the lovers that forever broke my heart.

To all the friends, who stood apart. 

A toast of praise, held high, in your honor

May the memory of you blosom long after the death of a simple flower

Drink fast. Drink long.

Just don't get lost on the way to the bottom

In the end, we only need one shot to carry on
