Acknowledgement - Poem by AHO Speaks


To be given something and in particular a free gift
Not to say; 'thank you, ' is befit.

Unless you have a mental deficiency or such
Why would you not at least say, 'thank you'; very much'?

If you are non appreciative, selfish, or the like
Then not saying 'thank you', may be all right.

A gift can be a present depending on the event
But a 'thank you' given, is also well spent.

Part of a humans being but if not
How will they know; if not taught?

The universal God creator one needs not glory and praise
Only an occasional, 'thank you', for one of those special days.

A gift is not owed but only given
Not for the dead but only for the living.

To say, 'thank you, ' for the gifts of spiritual worth
From the giver of life to those on earth.

'Thank you, ' is something to save in your personal bank
Right near the top of your being; of the hightest rank.
