On awakening, and opening ones eyes,
be thankful to be able see the sky.
To listen to that song bird sing,
just feel the wind as it rustles against your skin.
Smell the scent of an opening flower,
to luxuriate under a steaming hot shower.
For granted is what we take all of these things,
but one can never tell, what the future will bring.
So enjoy all the pleasures, that you can in your life,
be loving, kind, and gentle, to your friends, lover, husband, or wife.
For one can never know, when the almighty, will slam shut the door,
then everything you have, will be gone for ever more.
