Thanksgiving Time

Updated on November 21, 2012

Thanksgiving is a time

For the gathering of family and friends

For holding hands

And saying prayers

Thanksgiving is a time

For counting blessings

And sharing smiles

By candlelit dinner tables

Thanksgiving is a time

When we reflect

Remembering those who are not with us

Knowing that they are still among us

Thanksgiving is a time

For saying prayers

And praising the Lord

For hugs and great big kisses

Thanksgiving is the time

To extend friendly hands

Symbolically through the cyber world

And saying thank you for being there friends

Thanksgiving is a time

So wonderful indeed

With warm smiles

Passed along from one to another

Thanksgiving is a time

That’s a joy for young and old

A time to be with one another

And thank our lucky stars

Thanksgiving is a time

For loving, giving and passing kindness along

For saying I love you

One and all

Happy, happy Thanksgiving!

      Gypsy, I believe you've had a marvelous Thanksgiving Day. This poem describe the meaning of this day perfectly. Rather count our blessings than mourn what brought us sorrow :)

      Rasma - Really a beautiful poem! And not once did you make mention that it was a "prep" day for Black Friday! Amazing how things seem so much better without that! Great Job!
