The Gifts

Ya Rabbee,
everything I have is from You
the body, mind, intelligence, ability to feel,
this home, my family, friends,
this city, its facilities,
my nation and the entire human fellowship,
these fruits & magnificent greenery,
the mountains, the deserts & the oceans,
the co-habitat that lives in the seas and on land.

And the most beautiful gift -
Consciousness itself
which forms the bed-rock of my senses,
has been given to me by You.

None of it is debt
for nothing is mine own to give
but that I recognize You.
