Thank You For The Gift, The Present
The present being a gift is a familiar quote attributed to many and a particular favorite theme of mine but I would like to put it in a poem today for you. I have mentioned that a friend shared a CD by Collin Raye with me that she thought that I would like. She was right, I did and do. One of the several songs on it that I plan to record myself and send out on my Daily Mockingbird Song email is a song we mostly hear at Christmas time but it is so lovely that I share it here before writing a poem to say my own Thank You For The Gift:
Thank You For The Gift
The greatest gift we can give to others
Is to hold the light, and the mirror high
In all the world the greatest of lovers
Know beauty is in the beloved’s eye.
It is only and then when we truly love
That beauty’s true secrets are unfurled
It was we, the One the only God, He/She,
Who magically created this wonderful world.
For this most magical of all moments
Though it seem things are in the tanks
We bow our heads and reverently whisper
For this wondrous gift we say, “Thanks.
Your friend and fellow traveler,
