When I look around at life
My lack of trouble also strife
I have reason to believe
It’s not hard to achieve
A feeling, not a platitude,
But just plain honest gratitude.
We all have something to be grateful for
Some have less, some have more
As for myself, I have plenty
And reasons I could write of many
Here for you, to contest
But first, let me stress
It’s not mine you need address
But your own you should express.
Let people know how much they matter
Write it down, send a letter
Handwritten, envelope and stamp
For them to hold, know they’re a champ.
We all have time to just write thanks
And let them know just why they rank
At the top of your thank you list
Don’t forget and let it go missed.
