Thankful Song

We began the day on a thankful note;
Grateful for so many things.
So I took it upon myself to be the one who wrote;
Friends, family, places, feelings…

For what are we thankful?  
Teachers teach, students learn;
Policemen protect, dogs bark, nurses and doctors heal…
If not for firefighters, our world might burn.
If not for Art and Music, how would we feel?

For what are we thankful? 
A winter coat? Good health? A happy home? A library full of books? 
“Sugah, there are smiles all around.”
Sleep well in a fine hotel. Take your pick.
Visit a new restaurant in town.

For what are we thankful?
Parades and fireworks from here to the ocean.
Finding funds for those who are forlorn;
Sunshine. Flowers, Rainbows, Emotion;
Ice Cream, Cheddar Cheese Crackers, Popcorn.
At the end of the day – be happy and pray;
Count your blessings. Treasure everything;
Look, listen, laugh, let it be as it may…and sing.
Like a two year old child - on a brand new swing.
