Millionaire of Health


Feeling today like a millionaire,

Breathing in the fresh spring air.

I thank my kidneys

For filtering,

Congratulate my brain

Upon reflecting.

My digestive system

Is up to par.

These legs can take me very far.

I can see,

I can hear,

I can tell funny jokes.

I can wave and smile at the passing folks.

Thank you dearest G-d

For sustaining me.

Ever grateful I am

For being healthy.
