Thank You, My Life: A Poem
I cannot wait for those right words and phrases
to be invented while by the heavens inspired
for expressing my gratitude and give praises
after getting more than I have ever desired.
Thank you, my life for blessings I've received
and maybe I got more by not expecting much
with all the abundance in my heart conceived
having unfolded for me as if by a Mida's touch.
If I knew how to love life more, I would
without new gifts of life to cause that joy
for all I have got so far is already just good
and no life diplomas for this eternal schoolboy.
Thank you for each temptation and test
giving me opportunity to learn and grow
with no greed, arrogance to claim the best
thank you for everything I have and I know.
Thank you, my life, from depths of my soul
for lessons you taught me, even those I failed
and thank you for guidance to each and every goal
but above all, thank you for each cubit of air I've inhaled.
