While taking a stroll in the night,
I smile at each day-ending sight.
To see all around me at peace
makes gratitude quickly increase.
The beauty I see doesn’t cease,
it needs but my nod to release.
I learn as the years left decrease,
my life isn’t owned, it’s a lease.
Each days brings a gift to invite
my thankfulness mixed with delight.
