For many things I’m grateful,
one of them is health
I don’t need to leave it fateful
health to me means wealth.
Part of being wealthy is family and friends
having a home is also great to me
It’s important that love never ends
and that I’m truly safe and free.
So many people don’t have anything to eat
They barely have water and the bit they have is unclean
Where I live in nature is giving and still neat
I have clothes to wear and the grass is green.
I’m grateful for my education for the chances given to me
I’m thankful I can travel in planes and in my car
How glad I am that I have music, I can hear and I can see
that I have my dreams, moon and sun and wind and star.
Life has given me so much to thank for
civilization, technology, a home and pets
what else do I need, what to I want more?
I am lucky, with me and my three cats.
It’s time for saying prayers
to be thankful and feeling blessed
And to send our thanks to the One
and see them properly addressed.
