Dear God, I wanted
To tell you how much
I deeply appreciate all
You’ve done for me
Since the moment I
Took my first breath,
Of earth’s sweet air
Into my infant lungs.
I don’t stop
And tell you very often
How amazingly wonderful this life is
Despite all the problems
We humans unceasingly encounter.
And yet, despite all
Our anger, worries, frustrations
Disillusionments and feelings of
Nothing beats a baby’s laugh,
A dozen long stem red roses,
A spectacular sunset
Or Shakespeare’s Iambic Pentameter
To remind me that
I’m only here for
A grain of sand of time
And that you’re the power that lies behind
Each and every miracle we experience
In this wonderful world.
For thinking the thought that brought
Us here and giving us
The opportunities to
Overcome our faults and failures
And strive ever upward, onward towards
A place in our hearts, minds and souls
Ultimately bringing us back
Into your fold.
