Let Us Give Thanks (Poem) - Poem by Dave Tanguay

Our world of so many modern conveniences
We were born to accept, and have taken for granted
Allow us to live our lives with very little inconveniences
In our minds, a feeling of aid has been implanted

What would we do without television or telephone?
Not to mention a washer and dryer, along with
Running water
We were all born during such an historical milestone
With personal computers, our home - became our world

Let us give recognition, to the men and women - who
The pioneers of yesterday, who gave us - what we have today
Through their hard work and tolerance, let their deeds be revered
Let us offer a moment of tribute, be gratefully given - in a highly
Valued way

Guided with persistence - by way of God’s resourceful hand
For he worked along beside them, as he whispered - his plan
Prayers - from those seeking to find a better way
Were being answered, -unfolding, before us were the wonder’s
Of a entirely newfound day

    Awesome write, Dave! I particularly liked the line about our homes being our 'world headquarters' (thanks to computers) . Valid and meaningful points made throughout. Really well done! ! (Report) Reply

    A nice reminder Dave, it had to be said and you said it so well. We have become spoiled and want to have all the modern conveniences. One thing many forget, we must thank the creator who made it all possible. Thankyou for your wise words Dave.---Melvina--- (Report) Reply

    Very wise and inspiring. A 'thank you' to the One who made it all possible would not go amiss here.

    Kindest regards,
