Thank You God - Poem by Eunice B. Gardner

I just want to thank you for the freedom of speech,
Being able to worship anytime and where we want to,
For giving me a wonderful mom and dad, a brother and sister,
A son, two lovely daughters, and two beautiful grandchildren
Thirty years of married life with my husband, Harold
Who has given the courage and the strength to do things
Thanks for giving me the confidence to pass my drivers test
It sure seems great to get in the car and go.
Thanks for helping us to have a warm place to live,
Being able to get a restful night's sleep.
For the birds of the air, beautiful flowers and trees,
Fish, mammals, and nature of all kinds.
For being able to give me wisdom to put my feelings down on paper.
Above all, I want to thank you for giving me the privilege
Of taking my friend Sharon with me to the International Society of Poets
This summer in Washington, D.C., where I was honored
And we met some new friends.
God, why don't people give you thanks more often?

    I suggest you read '(1.8) About 'The Best From 2003' from Karl Stuart Kline, which will put you right about the ISP, a bunch of scammers who just want your money. (Report) Reply
