I am Grateful by Metaphorest/Sarah Daly. (Photo taken by moi, in county Waterford, Ireland)
I am grateful that my body is intact That I have arms and legs, a front and back
And I'm grateful for the forces in my favour For benevolence that only rarely wavers I am glad I have the freedom to reflect To speak my mind and be met with respect
That I have loved and been loved back as well To have people who would catch me if I fell I am lucky to have been born in a place
Where I can eat and drink and show my face To a family where I was well looked after By two brothers and a mother and a father.
I am happy to be healthy and still breathing And to know that when my final breath is leaving That I can set my soul and bones to rest Knowing that my days were truly blessed.
