If you were to ask me a year ago,
where I thought I'd be.
I would say "dead" or "gone"
Never would I have
imagined myself here.
In this very room, surrounded by
everyone who I hold dear.
Ready to leave this place, which
has caused me both happiness and pain.
I am thankful for everything around me
which has given me life.
I am thankful for God and faith,
even if I didn't always believe.
Friends and family, who are always
Even if it doesn't always feel like it.
But most of all I am thankful for
the miracles of life.
Whenever I'm on the edge,
and ready to give up.
Someone comes along and gives me
that tiny spark of hope needed to carry on.
