The Elysian Muse



I'm Grateful

Written by Samar Jain


Today and everyday I’m grateful for the forest, flowers and trees…
fruits, petals and green leaves,
I’m grateful for the animals, birds and all the beings,
I’m grateful for the lakes, rivers and seas,
and for all that simply heals,
I’m grateful for the love, and the one who does,
For the divine dove in the blissful above,
In these unusual times, I’m grateful for the covid warriors who courier hope,
I cry for those who grieve, mourn for those who leave,
What pains me is the dearth,
But I still love my earth,
I promise to care for earth, anywhere and everywhere,
For I am aware of the nightmare, you must also beware,
I promise to value our home by doing my bit,
I promise to care for our earth and everything it has to offer,
I choose to celebrate earth day, today and every single day.
