Today I noticed today
my heart take a lift
I was aware of
being a wonderful gift.
I have a warm bed,
with clean sheets,
wonderful blankets in a quiet home.
No longer on the streets nor highways to roam.
I could flick a switch to turn on a light.
The water flowed in my shower…
the temperature just right.
I did not have to chop and haul in the wood.
The warm water flowed right where I stood.
I did not have to go
to the dugout to bring in the water.
I did not have to build the fire
to heat the stove,
to boil the water,
to fill the bath.
One flick of the switch…
the joy of its simplicity made me laugh.
How many dear Souls,
are wandering still
On the byways of life,
searching for something, anything
the empty spaces to fill?
How many dear hearts, are dying of thirst?
How many are hungry…their children come first?
How many dear ones are without a home?
No dry safe place to rest.
Oh, yes I am so blest.
I live with freedom
in my wonderful home.
I am sheltered, warmed, protected…
so blessed that I no longer roam.
What did you do today…
I shared with them the joys as above.
They mentioned that I see all things with love.
I am not living in a dumpster, or behind prison’s bars.
I have joy and freedom under the stars.
I have wonder and beauty in the simplest things
Oh, yes, a warm home and a bath can make my heart sing.
Every moment a gift.
Each second a blessing.
