A birthday again! I’m so glad to pass this way today!
I’m glad to live every day, hopefully a little longer here to stay.
Another cosmic yearly rotation to witness the sun, moon, stars
Rise, set, while they shed light on the earth so marvelous.
Brilliant, sharp, excelled, focused these I strive for in and around me
In my yearly cycles of watching, waiting, interacting, glad to pass this way today.
Now the littlest things are rare and treasured: small hands, words so right, gems
Smiles from strangers, kind acts, love, generosity, and arms around me.
The biggest ideas grab me, I hope for change, love peaceful understanding
Leaders of this fair world take heed: we are all delicate, rare, like earth so stunning.
Every day I walk, taste, learn, listen, see; I’m so glad to pass this way today
To witness the awe, love, and beauty. It is honor to be here alive every day.
