Numb and Amazed

Numb and amazed day by day
that I am alive.
I’ve seen so many things in life.
I’m amazed I have survived.
Sometimes it feels like
everyone around me
is just a passing moment
that almost seemed not to be.
Wondering and pondering
on how it’s all come down.
With all that I’ve experienced,
it’s surprising I’m around.
So I thank you, God, for each day
that I am blessed to live.
I pray that I share with others
the love that you give.
