~::~ Gratitude ~::~

When everything in life seems blue

Nothing works how you want it to

Take a deep breath, believe it true

Just say thank you, just say thank you

 

When you’re lost without a clue

Empty life, escorted with rue

Picture yourself, where you’d want to

Just Say Thank you, just say thank you

 

Depression’s cup overflows through

Feelings seems totally askew

Trust in your heart, you’ll come anew

Just say thank you, just say thank you

 

It begins with your attitude

Breaking free from life’s Servitude

Thanks multiply in magnitude

It’s gratitude, its gratitude

  1. Shouldn’t the line “When you’re lost without a clue” be “When you are lost without a clue” in order to get the 8 syllables? “You’re” is one syllable. I could get the beat when I changed that in my head.
    I like the format. Will have to try it in one of mine before Z!
