As she purrs happily by my side,
I’m grateful for the summer warmth,

One person who shows me she is always here,
I’m grateful for my heart that beats,
Even when it’s full of fear.

I’m grateful for my first coffee of the day,
As it scolds my lips with heavenly bliss,
I’m grateful for my son’s good morning,
And again for his goodbye kiss.
