I Have a Wonderful Life



I may not have a lot of fame
Nor a mansion on a hill
I have no real fine gifts to give
There is nothing to reveal.

I do not have a lot of wealth
But I have the things I need
There are those who have most everything
Whose lives are full of greed.

I have a kind and loving heart
With gentleness doth reign
There are those who have no heart at all
And send out lots of pain.

I have a wonderful spirit
That will never grow jagged or old
There are those who have no feeling at all
Their days are dark and cold.

I have a wonderful pair of legs
To help me get around
There are those who have no legs at all
To lift them when they’re down.

I have a wonderful pair of arms
To give a hug or two
There are those who have no arms at all
To feel the love I do.

I have a wonderful pair of hands
To let me work and play
There are those who have no hands at all
To help them through the day.

I have a wonderful pair of ears
To listen to the rain
There are those who cannot hear at all
The splash upon the pane. 

I have a wonderful pair of eyes
They have beheld some beautiful sights.
There are those who cannot see at all
Their world is black as night.

I have a wonderful sense of smell
And enjoyed the aroma of flowers
There are those who cannot know this joy
And miss life’s fragrant hours.

My life has been a rainbow
With only a bit of strife
Today I counted my blessings 
I have a wonderful life.
