Some days will come by
and I’ll act like
it was mine to have all along.
I’ll get so busy and caught up
with everything else
that I forget to say “thank you”.
And then some days will come along
and I’ll remember without a doubt
tomorrow may never come
whether or not I appreciate it.
I’ve learned to wake up
with a grateful heart each day.
To smell the flowers
while they are still fresh.
Though I’ll still forget they are there.
