Arugula Goat Salad and a Bottle of Wine

Being in the midst of something they said you could never do,
Being in the midst of over coming tears with laughter, 

Keep it together. 

The art of scraping through, 
Never has in been so continuously exercised, 
Keep looking out over Grove; you can almost see the 10,000 tropical islands that you once called home. 

For once not welcoming tears, 
Making them wait their turn until the end of the night,
Teaching tears to be timid, 
Teaching tears to be patient. 

You’ll be ok
You’ll be ok
You’ll be ok

And so will you.
