Could you describe the sky to a person without sight,
the gift of shades and shadows you receive each day and night?
Could you depict the freedom of walking down the street
to a person who has never had the use of their two feet?
Could you express the comfort of sleeping in a bed
to someone who does not have a place to lay their head?
Could you explain the pleasure of a satisfying meal to a child
who has never known the fullness that you feel?
Could you, in all honesty, with good and truthful measure,
say that you are thankful and consider life a treasure?
