I never knew what gratitude looked like

Until i saw it reflected in your eyes

Until i felt the reception of one tiny act of love

A gift so benign i didn't think it had a name

Only the intention of making you happy

Who knew the secret of life came so naturally

No drama or technique

No philosophy or academia

All it takes is that one tiny act of love

And to recognize the gratitude in it's reflection

To bring it into your heart

And see that you are the one that is blessed
