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.
