Simple Ways - Poem by Jeff Bresee

I woke one day as I recall
Years back in time
But not in mind
The reason I know not at all
But felt I there
And humbled knew
For peace distilled as morning dew
Life is a gift indeed

Then from that morn the years have passed
Whilst way to way
Filled up the day
And brought me where I stand at last
Worn thin of wear
And weak of will
Yet in my mind the memory still
Stirs deep inside my soul

That life is yet a gift indeed
With open wings
And wonderous things
Free to the soul who takes not speed
But rather stands
With thankful heart
And from the simple ne’re departs
But holds to what is free

Thus now I pause each morn I wake
With mind that I
Shall pray and try
To never want nor granted take
But rather live
In simple ways
And cherish what each blessed day
I’m given holds in store
