Thank you for the air we breathe in
So that we can filter out
Dust and dirt;
Thank you for the water we drink
So that we can water plants, trees,
Green roots and ruts.
Thank you for the food we eat
So that we live to save the canopy
Of man and mankind;
Thank you for the home we sleep in
So that we make a roof for others --
All those, tired of the daily grind.
Thank you for the energy bestowed
To energise the drained soul
And sunken heart;
Thank you for all your selfless efforts
For beautifying the earth,
For ennobling us before we depart.
