Thanks Giving - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Before it is too late,
Let me affix my signature
To the declaration of gratitude
For all the men I’ve benefited from,
All the women I’ve shared my love with,
All the lines I’ve read with interest,
All the words I’ve heard with eagerness,
All the things I’ve seen with curiosity,
And all the thoughts I’ve marveled at.

Before it is too late,
Let me affix my signature
To the declaration of gratefulness
For my ancestors whose product I am,
My progeny who made my life purposeful,
All things which were hunted for my prey,
All the air and water that kept me alive
And more than all that were expressed,
For the fate to have let me live so far.

As I am not fated to be
Present in my farewell
That the world is soon to host,
I leave this thanks giving address.
