Toasted Wishes

Ten years ago
I sat at a table with a dozen
friends, half a lifetime and
a thousand miles away.

We toasted four decades of life
and imagined what the next
one would bring.

“What if” is a dangerous
game. It teases you onto
thin ice, lures you to
the edge of the cliff.

One of us got what she wished
for. Some of us lost mothers,
children, lovers, faith, hope.

Ten years from now
I may sit at a table with
friends toasting six
decades of life.

What will we celebrate and
mourn? How many of us will
have gotten what we wished for?
