Thanksgiving is a time for reflection

Of the year's triumphs and tribulation

It is a time for celebrating

It is a time for sharing.



The beauty of thanksgiving

Is its occasion for gathering

Loved ones and friends far and wide

With differences and conflicts set aside.



For some the truce may be temporary

Based on an understanding felt deeply

That despite the drifting apart

Feelings continue to remain in the heart.

For others it is a time for reconciling

For the bonds that bind are unyielding

Making past transgressions a weakness

Against the power of forgiveness.



Thus thanksgiving provides the chance

To exchange the gift of acceptance

There's no better way of expressing

Gratitude for blessings we've been receiving.



So let us revel on this special occasion

And begin to make a connection

To people we hold dear in our heart

And can't allow to just drift apart.
