The Thanksgiving In ME

The Thanksgiving In ME

The thanksgiving in me
Looks forward to see
What blessings this season does bring

It’s more than the feast
The dough and the yeast
It’s freedoms we hale, we sing

We gaze misty eyed
At heroes who’ve died
To insure that we celebrate free

A child’s pleading eye
For a big piece of pie
In part is thanksgiving in me

To view nature’s charm
With my wife on my arm
Indeed, this is heaven on earth

The trees shed their leaves
Children play as they please
Oh, how I treasure their birth

This dinner of cheer
Heralds winter is near
Soon, “Dad, cut our big Christmas tree”

Mom’s final say
Picks the tree that will stay
I love this thanksgiving in ME

The land soon will bow
With snow covered boughs
We’re all warm and cozy inside

This land that I love
Blessings sent from above
Is why I still live here with pride

The things dear to me
The thanksgiving in me
Is why I will never refrain

To thank God above
For my family I love
This is Thanksgiving in ME
