Blessings are the things we take for granted.
Each holiday's a chance again to see.
Most know the Earth is utterly enchanted
Yet walk through life and love mechanically.
Valuing one's gifts takes resolution
After sojourning in fantasy.
Love brings to us the gift of absolution,
Enveloping our hesitance in need.
No touch inspires so swift a revolution,
Transforming all the hieroglyphs we read.
In your love there's a blessing I will sing,
Now that there's a platform for the deed,
Embracing days that make one's heart take wing.
