Thank You – September 2015

Should we still be grateful
In the aftermath of evil
What is there to cheer about
When it’s like you’ve been pierced in the heart
We can’t be happy it happened
Unless maybe an evil lurks inside

There’s still someone left, to pick up the pieces
Perhaps pieces from which another life might emerge
Something valuable that could have been lost but wasn’t
And best, there’s the hope that things will get better
That yesterday is the past we’ve let go
And today is the future we hold for tomorrow

Certainly, I am grateful
For grace, for mercy, for hope
For love and the will to grow

Some say it is family that come to comfort
Thank You for family
Thank you, family

It’s nine months
And the baby is about to be delivered

I am grateful for the safe delivery
Call it a new beginning

Thank You for fresh starts
