Gratitude Has An Attitude

someone-i-loved-once crop

gratitude
is an attitude
of celebrating

the difference
between a gift

gratitude
is an attitude
of the heart
allowing
the gift within
to discover
itself

words that will not

dare to defile the pure

goodness dwelling within

every child’s heart

I am again awestruck by    
the power of trusting     
and allowing
