For Granted

Updated on March 17, 2011

Ever watch a sunset

take a moonlight stroll

Ever stop to just watch

a bird feed her young

Have you ever took a deep breath

after the rain

Have you watched a mother

love her child

When was the last time you just sat

and reflected on life

Was there ever a time you tossed

a penny into a wishing well

Have you let life pass you by

When was the last time you laughed out loud

Ever watch a movie and it made you cry

Did you stop to pick a flower

write a love song

When was the last time you took time out for you

Was there ever a time you wanted to climb

the highest mountain venture to the deepest

depths of the sea

Did you stop to count the stars

have you ever wanted to visit a distant land

Life's little pleasures taken for granted

Ever stop to just to give thanks

Ever listen to the rhythm of the ocean

When was the last time you said thank you to

a friend

All these things we take for granted

to be here today could be gone
