GIFTS

Terror, the gift of Dracula
Joy, the gift of Light
Dread, the gift of Death
Gratitude, the gift of Heart
Loneliness, the gift of Birth
Caress, the gift of Body
Companionship, the gift of Another

I celebrate each, Good or Bad
I embrace each, Good and Bad

I bow to All and more,
And rise Upright
Above them All

— Abraham Menashe
