Thanks to Life

THANKS TO LIFE

Thankyou life for all you give, though often I don’t see

All those daily miracles you put in front of me

So blinded am I in my ways, I walk with blinkers on

Take for granted many things, then the moment is gone

I dwell too much on problems. no time for gratitude

Consumed by negativity, I must seem really rude

Ignorant to the blessings that surround me every day

Only notice some things when you take them away

I must raise my awareness so I’m in tune with you

And learn to shift my focus, change my point of view

I’ll see the tiny details life breathes through many things

Observe from your perspective the wonder that you bring

I’ll learn to be less selfish, for life is valuable

Priceless are your many gifts, you are unconditional

Sorry that it took so long to appreciate your worth

And really notice everything you show me here on Earth.
