Thanksgiving Day

A day to give thanks
Should somehow be more
Than the turkey and dressing
That we all adore

As we sit down to dinner
And comfortably graze
Lets remember the others
With a wide staring glaze

Their tummys not full
They wonder their fate
As we add more food to
An already full plate

Giving thanks without giving
Leaves me empty inside
And so with a prayer
God be my guide

To be gracious and give
Of myself and my time
I want to be part
Of a plan that's not mine

To listen in love
To act without pride
And draw others in need
Close to my side

Bowing heads to give thanks
Sharing bread for the day
Its all about giving
In your own special way.
