Simple gifts

Written by: Laura Mckenzie

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
