Here's to the Days

Here's to the bad days
to the days that end with you in tears
or nearly
To the days that make you wish 
you'd wake up to discover it was a dream 
and that the day hadn't been lived yet 
to the days that make you forget yourself 
and pray to a deity you don't believe in 
or forget that yours exists
Here's to the bad days 
that start with dumping coffee on a white shirt
And end with you dropping your phone in a puddle 
Mid-conversation 
here's the bad days 
that start with getting lost in an unfamiliar place
and end with at least one of us broken
Here's the bad days 
Where you forget everything 
from how many fingers you have 
To your child in the supermarket 
here's to the bad days.
 
Here's to the eh days 
to the days that pass without comment 
to the days that contain nothing more incredible 
than the simple fact that you woke up for them 
here's to the eh days 
that contain nothing more remarkable than dirt,
and are just as common
here's the eh days
 
Here's to the good days 
to the days that your hair looks freaking fantastic
without you trying 
to the days that you remembered 
everything you needed 
here's to the good days 
to the days 
your toast didn't burn, and your eggs were just right 
here's to the good days
The days that you woke up 
on the right side of the bed for
and was okay with being up that early
here's to the good days 
the days you don't have to second-guess your answers 
to the days that you got this 
here's to the days 
that your homework is on time 
your car starts on the first try 
and your teeth stay in your mouth the whole day 
Here's to the good days.
 
Here's to the great days
to the days you win the game
the days you don't have homework 
to the days when the weather is just right 
Here's to the great days
the days where you got enough sleep 
to the days you get the "A" you deserve 
here's the great days 
where everything you eat is delicious 
and everything you do succeeds 
here's to the great days
to the days you tried something new 
and to the days no one forgot your name
To the days that you feel like a genius 
or maybe you wouldn't go that far 
Here's to the great days 
To the days a stranger calls you beautiful 
and someone else tells you to have a lovely day
Here's to the great days.
 
Here's to the days
That we lived.
