How is it that
When I count my blessings, they multiply?
Gratitude is one thing that runs contrary
To all mathematical formula we know.
The feeling of happiness multiples
When I am thankful.
The number of people who helped me
Multiply when I want to thank.
The urge to help others in any way
Multiplies too when I am grateful.
I will always have an endless supply
Of well wishing and blessings
When I have the heart to give.
My step is lighter, my voice is lilting
My every being is pulsating with life
When I bow in thanks before God Almighty
And the many kind people
His representatives on Earth.
