I am Grateful for this Life

I am grateful for this heart
that is pounding and pulsing with so much love

I am grateful for my legs
that are strong enough to walk, to dance and feel the grass underneath my feet

I am grateful for my hands
that are able to caress, clap and hold someone dear to me

I am grateful for my eyes
to see the beautiful colors all around such as the sunrise and sunset

I am grateful for my ears
to listen to classical music, the beauty of its rhythm and the sound of stillness

I am grateful for my nose
to smell the aroma of a cooked meal, the scent of a flower or a sneeze or two

I am grateful for my voice
that allows to express myself

I am grateful for this life.

  1. God this is beautiful, thank you! I love how you phrased the title too…”I am grateful for this life”. This is important for me in my own growth. 🙂 Blessings.

  2. I think if people spent more time being grateful instead of focusing on what is wrong in their lives, it’d be a happier existence. Good post.

  3. Having a heart of gratitude is always a peaceful place to reside… thanks for reminding us gratitude comes in accepting the simple things in life.

  4. A beautiful poem and philosophy. It’s so easy to complain at times about things that won’t even matter in the long run, forgetting all the things, big and small, that we have to be grateful for.

  5. It’s really easy to overlook the little things, things that come so easy to us that we forget to look at the beauty in them.

    Thanks for sharing.
