Abundance we received,achieved & gained,now is the time to give away our all
We aimed for big & high & fast but the path we forgot for slow & small!
Thankful to virtues, blunders & mistakes we might have unknowingly made
Sorry to those whom we've forgotten,if rough words were unwillingly said !
Let the past be unfold, careful the future, indeed looks sunny & bright!
We are thankful to those who came our way, forgiving us for our blind sight!
