You are that first sip of coffee,
that first bite of sushi,
the pillow on which I sleep.
You are a sandwich when I am hungry,
a nice cup of water with lemon when I am thirsty,
a pat on the head when I need one.
You are a smile from a stranger,
a shout out from a friend,
a paycheck that covers my bills.
You are a car that doesn’t break down,
a bus that I catch on time,
a grocery bag full of goodies.
You are my dogs wagging their tails,
my cats meowing in approval,
my turtles just hanging out.
You are every good feeling
that I have ever had, and I thank you.
