The Gift

Life is beautiful

I know this to be true

And like the protagonist

In ‘War and Peace’

It’s taken hard time

Hitting rock bottom

And suffering

To see it clearly

And so it’s with gratitude

That I greet each day

And thank my lucky stars

That in didn’t end

In the depths of despair

All those years ago

Now I see

This amazing phenomenon

Of being a conscious being

With thought and body and soul

As a rare and beautiful gift

To be treasured and cherished

Life’s a gift

Make the most of it
