THANKS

By Bernice Velez
On October 3, 2013
How do I thank thee let me count the ways. 
 
I asked you for a daughter when I really believed I'd have a son.
 
I was so sure of the strength in the power of my request to you.
 
Mainly because there was no effort in the thought, that's called FAITH.
 
I wasn't aware I possessed it and/or the magnitude of it until I started to lose it.
 
I knew I was losing it when no matter what I attempted to do or say was questioned. 
 
My individuality has caused people, friends, family to alienate me. 
 
But not you, you offer yourself to me unconditionally
 
There was a time in my life when I thought it was all over.
 
This could have been when I lost my FAITH, yet I don't see how. 
 
That's the same time you gave me my son and although I LOVE my daughter,
 
You showed me a beacon through my son.
 
The thought that you could offer yours to better my life makes me feel guilty. 
 
For this I will like to thank you.
 
Although I am not as sure of myself now as I was then, 
 
I am aware of the strength in your power.
