I am so grateful for all the experiences
I’ve had up to this point where I am now.
I am so very deeply grateful by the lives
I’ve got to have shared in my life.
I am so grateful for all the moments I got
With loved ones, near and far, alive still or already gone.
I am so grateful for all that I have within me,
Within my heart, within my mind, within my soul.
I am so deeply grateful for all that I can carry with me forward,
That even during the critical and challenging moments,
When it felt like a smothering heavy weight holding me down,
Depressing me, grieving me, frustrating me,
There was a silver lining within it all,
There within every bit of heartbreak, pain, confusion,
Proof, I can and will still rise.
Caught ablaze because ‘LOVE,’ holds many treasures,
Within all its variety.
I am so grateful for everything, every plunge down,
Whether it be through joy or sadness,
Misjudging or understanding, hardship or triumph…
I am so grateful for who I have within me,
Within this body, this shell, containing so much strength,
Courage and heart, to endure what I have and what I will.
I am so grateful for all, who I’ve ever loved, all who I’ve
Ever lost, who loves me, who I love, and those yet to meet…
I am so grateful for how truth emanates through
Moments of chaos, immense grief, immense joy,
Intensely and subtly, surprising and lingers,
When I sit back to observe, to allow all that to become as needs be,
Another reflective, evolving, lesson, blessing, moment.
I am so grateful for this and so much more,
Thank you, Be Well, Be Blessed, Have grace, have faith,
And love with all you’ve got.
