It took the threat of losing it all It took the unforgiving gaze of the unknown leaning over your shoulder,
in order to truly savor the first breath of crisp air in the morning. To appreciate the juxtaposition of complex musculature and soft, sweeping lines that is a smile
To not take for granted the warmth of your bed at the day’s end, and to commit to memory each flavor of that cherished soft drink.
And to give, your family and friends gathered around the most elaborate feasts To give, loved ones traveled from near and far
And the joy is intoxicating and contagious. And the love flows free like wine And you wonder why this spirit only visits once a year.
