The Greatest Gifts

As I lie awake in bed,

I think of what could have been,

I think of how I might be alone in the dark, with nowhere to go,

no one to love,

and no one to care that I was there.

And then I know that I'm alive,

filled with hope and dreams inside.

I have a heart and I have love,

I have somebody to dream of.

And as the sun begins to rise,

full of beauty in the sky.

I think of how much I have to be thankful for, things that shall be mine forever more.

A gentle smile, a loving hug.

These are the things that I'm thinking of.
