Grace Poem by G.R. Gaus

Grace

Rating: 4.8


I thank you for this life,
To experience a chance,
To feel the hidden wonders,
At more than just a glance.

I thank you for this body,
Enclosed this beating heart,
In rhythm with the universe,
Till ending from the start.

I thank you for this endless soul,
Who’s traveled back through time,
And now this present moment,
Many more still left to climb.

I thank you for this Mother Earth,
Who nurtures us with care,
Her beauty for all eyes to see,
Take time to smell her air.

I thank you for another day,
To breathe another breath,
Sacred is this mortal life,
Every moment until death.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Appreciating the simple things is usually ignored until we hear the word terminal.

You Re so right GR, that word terminal is a wake-up call to all who hear it. A beautiful poem, and I particularly like the closing stanza.
