Gratitude

I’m grateful for everything

for the light and dark

and many shades in between.

for everything I’ve lost and found again.

everything I lost and learned to live without.

I’m grateful for church bells ringing at 8am

For the sun setting over the sea in untamed glory

and sweet air that fills me up

and places me squarely on the ground.

For every moment my body fights for my life.

I’m grateful for every time I leaped and was caught.

For everything I didn’t think I could survive

and was proven wrong in the end.

For making me fall

and teaching me to get up again.
