Learn to be grateful

Learn to be grateful

Learn to be humble
Learn to forgive
Excuse the occasional stumble
Burn to live

With a low flame
As well as the roaring fire
Respond to wind and leaves
As well as the deepest desire

Smile upon a simple act
Feel the sunshine on your face
Breathe in....breathe out
Experience this thing called grace

Wait for simplicity to dance
Let the children's voices ring
Sip your coffee slowly
Appreciate all living things

They sing to you with heart
With the eternity of today
Listen as well as speak
What do you hear they say

Come unto life with open hands
With open eyes and mind
Search through out the universe
Get away with being kind
