You Are The Gift
You are the gift you give to others-
fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers,
family and friends, lovers and strangers all.
From the moment of your birth
on this beautiful, holy planet Earth,
you are the precious gift you bring.
Your gift may be ignored, abused,
hated, despised and cursed by any
or lovingly embraced, celebrated,
welcomed, adored and blessed by many.
Yet your true worth has no less value
despite what you or others see
when looking at Life’s wondrous gifts.
You are Life’s miracle and treasured wealth,
the gift of God as Life Itself.
