Gratitude


When my strength was gone
And I could not find the light
I was helpless as a babe
You were there to set things right

Generosity and loving care
Are the gifts you brought
You asked for nothing in return
Of yourself you gave without thought

Or all the things you do
All the ways you give
Those around you agree
Make life a pleasure to live
