Shades of Gratitude, by Julie Potiker

Gratitude may feel bouncy

Like a big rubber ball

Gratitude may feel floaty

Like the leaves in the fall

Gratitude may feel sweet

Like a babies little feet

Gratitude may feel neat

Like a perfectly wrapped treat

Gratitude may feel sad

Like the end of the story

Gratitude may feel low

Like you can’t feel the glory

Gratitude may be a yearning

For a time that’s now lost

Gratitude may leave you burning

For the bridge you did not cross

Gratitude can shine a light

On the choice you did make

For those days that are lemons

As you make lemonade

So good for you

As you walk this road

Steering your attitude

Towards gratitude

To lighten your load
