A Thanksgiving Poem

A Thanksgiving Poem

Thanksgiving day, a day to count your many blessing
A day to give thanks, and a day for remembrance
Remembrance of those who gave there all
Those no longer with us..give thanks,
Thanks for the money to buy the food on this table
And pray for those who can't afford the same food
Give thanks, for the family, and friends
The love ones that surround us on Thanksgiving
Then pray for the loved ones that cannot attend
Give thanks, thanks for the freedom
To celebrate Thanksgiving in whichever way you choose
And pray, pray for the soldiers that are protecting us,
Making the ultimate sacrifice to give you this freedom
And most importantly, give thanks, thanks for the red
Thanks for the white and thanks for the blue.
When asked how many things am I thankful for
I'll say 63 things 50 stars, and 13 stripes
