Excited children rest their heads
and dream of what does lie ahead.
The turkeys and the pies that wait,
the friends and family they will meet.
They remember the food and the friends so dear.
And the games they played only last year.
And as dawn breaks and they raise their heads
they remember to be thankful for the day ahead.
A day family, friends and fun
when we all think on the lives we have run.
A day when we hope for a long life ahead
and voice our dreams as we look ahead.
