I love this time of year with the green grass growing freely in the fields,
together we are planning a time of thanksgiving that our abundance yields,
Mom spending all her spare time getting ready for the big day,
we gather together around the table fully spread and pray,
thank you to the one who provided for our needs with a meal so full,
we want to be comforted and supported as we bow and say,
how much we feel so thankful on this glorious day.
Children hoping for something they like, mac’n’cheese or sunny d-lite.
Dad’s finishing touches carving ol’ Tom, with wide eyes
brings big smiles right from the heart,
making room for the best part,
the pumpkin, apple or chocolate pies.
Doggies hoping for their fair share as they grovel and beg,
peering over the knees of someone to egg.
My prayer is to be together with one thing in mind,
thankfulness, health, happiness and support for the lost,
helping and encouraging as we reconsider the cost.
