I Shouted a Toast to the Heavens

I shouted a toast to the heavens tonight
For my fallen friend
So recently gone
Taken by no fault of his own
By violence, by insanity
I shouted:
Hey Dom, I am here and
Drinking a pint to you
And if there's an afterlife
I hope you hear me
And are looking down
Enjoying one of your own
At some pub or bar or seedy joint
I don't really know what you prefer
Didn't know you that well
For those types of things
But I remember you
Your good nature and genius
Iconic Aussie hat, too
Remembering you tonight
Drinking pints
On my porch
Hope you heard me
If there's an afterlife
At all
At all
