To waking up every morning
To clear skies, to the rain falling
To tasty treats and hearty meals
To healthy food that heals
To kind words, to honesty
To genuine generosity
To beautiful people, to helping out
To traveling feet here and about
To diversity, to sights and sounds
To kindred spirits and friendships found
To come and go, like night and day
To those who choose to stay
To shared stories of rise and fall
To accepting people, warts and all
To peace and breaking up fights
To standing up for what is right
To trees, to plants, to nature
To family that continues to nurture
To creativity, to music, to art
To connections of the heart
To pain and healing
To the joy of life worth living
To another year
I’m truly grateful
