So many great blessings are recounted over time,
One by one joy and goodness often come to mind.
Placing trust upon pathways of fortuitous choices,
Remuneration shares its many benefits and gifts.
At times when the veil of darkness appears to fall,
It affords a timely contemplation before its clarity.
Isolation can be a very chilly perspective of location,
Warmth of invite and embrace can offer a belonging.
Reviewing the characters framed in old photographs,
Their fun captured in smiling faces of days long gone.
Huddled together on a cool evening telling tall tales,
Laughter lines and eyes alert to the jovial ambience.
Walking on golden sands hand in hand with real love,
Leaving footprints and collecting oceans of memories.
Each new dawn brings thanks for further opportunities,
Happiness reveals itself throughout the passage of life.
