A Toast to Those Who Do

Let me make a toast!

But first, please pour yourself a drink.

 

Now, let me begin with the achievers:

To all who get up in the morning with a plan to conquer their fears,

To all who relish in spontaneity--the daily pioneers,

To all who set up interviews for their dream careers,

Here's to you!

Never stop doing what you do.

 

Now, for the selfless:

To all who set their alarms early to volunteer and support,

To all who exude compassion and radiate comfort,

To all who reach out--it is love they exhort,

Here's to you!

Never stop doing what you do.

 

Now, for the dreamers:

To all whose eyes sparkle when sharing their passions in kind,

To all who have a singular goal in their mind,

To all who are not afraid of the upward grind,

Here's to you!

Never stop doing what you do.

 

Now, for the modest:

To all who conquer but then gladly step off their platform,

To all who shyly take compliments after they perform,

To all who are humble, quiet, and warm,

Here's to you!

Never stop doing what you do.

 

Now, your impact:

You inspire me more than you know,

You live with encouragement in tow,

You redefine the status quo,

Here's to you!

Never stop doing what you do.

 

Now, just a few final words:

If you appreciate these values,

If you see my point of view,

If both of these are true, let us lift our drinks to you,

Here's to you, too!

Never stop doing what you do.

 

Thank you.
