1. Gratitude


How do I find
The means to convey
All it is I long to say?
I overflow
With gratitude

Life's so brief
A fleeting bird
Will my prayers
Ever be heard?

I'm infinite
And so minute
Voice limitless
And yet so mute

Beyond the vault
Of velvet night
Past stars so bright
And deepest dark

A treasure trove
This solo heart
Weeps jeweled tears
Of gratitude
