And I'm So Glad to be Alive
October 4, 2011

Morning dew upon the trees,

Vermillion hues of autumn leaves,

Cool air and a cloudless sky,

And I'm so glad to be alive

Reading books in the grass,

Candles lit at Easter Mass,

The tree aglow at Christmastime,

And I'm so glad to be alive

Laughter so hard it could kill,

Giggles loud and clear and shrill,

So giddy that I must seem high,

And I'm so glad to be alive
