Gratitude for blessings received

Living on the Edge
Living on the Edge

The sun is setting in my day

I am blessed in every way.

The songs of the birds that beg me stay.

The gifts of living in a quiet way.

The loving mercy of good friends.

Oh, my blessings never end. 

If only…….

If only…

I could hold you  and wipe away the tears

If only…

I could do magic and banish all your fears.

If only…

You could see the beauty that you are

If only…

There was  some joy for you to realize

as you are waiting on the setting sun.

If only…

you could make your peace…

before you go beyond the stars. 

If only…

you were free of your dreaded disease.
