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.
