Gratitude

I don't have to be a saint
to be worth saving.
I don't have to pray for rain;
it comes all on its own.
I have your words tucked away.
I pull them out,
smooth the page,
they soothe me.
When day gives way to night,
I have enough to know
I'll be all right.

A gratitude poem in 55 for G-Man, dVerse, AND Real Toads.  Aren't I productive?

Wonderful piece MZ. First four lines are great thoughts, but you topped those with the smoothing of the page. Really enjoyed, thanks

Nice multitasking. And better than it has to be. I'm just thankful we can return to a post-holiday level of thankfulness, myself.

"I have enough to know
I'll be all right."

And that is exactly when enough is really enough.
