What am I thankful for?
As I lay here my mind searches 
Afraid of waking up 
it lurches
Vacilating within 
the folds of my covers and brain
Trying to return 
to my slumber again
Attempting to hang on
to my infinite creativity 
That partial sleepiness 
and rapid eye activity

Wiping my eyes 
I'm partially awake
Giving heavy hands and legs a shake
Thankful for the hard decisions 
I've been forced to make
The people in my space 
who are real and not fake
So I ponder the breadth of my life
Sharing it with the love of my life
My sweeties tongue never cuts like a knife
She's my best friend 
lover confidant and wife
The gift of family without the pretend
A life and future
Not a desolate dead end
I never expected
To find myself here
I used to loath 
what I seen in the mirror
Now in God's Grace 
I have nothing to fear

Now I am older
Feeling more content
My thoughts flow freely
I'm not bogged down in cement
Thinking the things I think
Now I can say what I meant
No longer linear 
My thoughts can be bent
So I thank God for an open mind
Knowing what it mean's 
to open the blinds
If a man searches 
he'll be surprised by what he finds

Love health and time
Should never be wasted
Food, touch and moments 
are gifted to be tasted
Give more then you take
Your heart will be sated
Forget comparisons
They are way over rated
Ambition and stuff
A poor substitute for living
Those who take, take, taking
are forgetting about the giving
Blessing to curses
Not the place to go
Instead i want thankful
It helps my heart to grow
