I Am Grateful

By Diane P. Coffey

To say the words
I am grateful
Is an opening into my heart

Gratitude reveals acceptance
Like lotus petals
One at a time

Gratitude is so much greater than appreciating gifts

In gratitude I surrender all expectations

With gratitude I forgive myself for not knowing
    And for misunderstanding

With compassion
I let go of judgment
My hand reaches out
To tenderly hold yours

Gratitude is so much more than
For your presence

I am grateful
Carries meaning from the depth of my heart
and out into the world

Grateful of heart
Grateful of soul
Counting blessings
One after the other

I cry out in gratitude
Accepting all that is
And expecting nothing

I am grateful
Trusting this moment
Receiving and giving
