Gratitude is

Gratitude is a glow from within the heart,

beginning at the very center;

spreading its arms,

extending past the edges.

Shocking your body to life,

shooting down to the tips of your toes.

An endless blue sky,

electric green leaves;

the breeze and the birds and the feeling of home.

Everything in technicolor.

For that moment, it hugs you

Holds you

Refuses to let go.

The moment passes; the light fades out

Sure, though, to return.

Gratitude is knowing you deserve nothing

Yet feeling you have everything.
