I MISSED THE GIFT
I was born, I was alive in a new world to me,
I thought that I had not much as I grew, I did not see.
Always asking why me or why don’t I have more,
I survived a terrible thing in this life, I am alive!
My life has been given to me, a gift extended beyond that day,
So much more than some as I believed I had nothing, ungrateful perhaps.
I missed the gift, It took many years and roads traveled to see,
So much has been given to me, I understand more as I have watched
Many times the sun rise and set, It is a gift to live and breathe.
