Typewriter series

I am thankful for...
               nights that turn into mornings
          light that filters through
          in drowsy moments
      sounds you can only hear with
               quiet concentration.
          home, and for those that call it that too
          a mind that speaks, music to drown in

       art to admire and be in awe of
          books books and books
          pages and chapters and real emotion
          over fictional characters

        sharp pencil points
                    forever memories

                   and faded memories
            peace and friends who remind me
            to smile and not fade away

           the ability to start over again
            seeing one more time
                       one  last   time

            if only in a dream
           all these pieces of life

            make me think
                     and thank

             the One who gave it all.
