My Mother Nature

Oh mother nature
how can I thank you?
For the warmth you give
and for the food you provide.

For quenching my thirst
and for lighting the earth
For the air I breathe
and the shelter you provide.

For all your sacrifices
how can I repay you?
You are kind
You are caring

In my mind
the question strikes forth
How can I repay you?

Thank you Mother Nature
for all your kindness
and for all your care
thank you so much.
