Should we ask for such an abundance of wealth from you?
When all around us waits a multitude of living beauty to view
One forgets the gifts you given to us going on about our day to day
We take for granted summer and the breezes of the trees that sway
We were given the right to think with our heads and make a choice
There are so many elements of nature that bring us reasons to rejoice
One of the great blessings is our ability to give and receive love
We should remember though our pockets are empty, our blessings are beloved
