~ Thanksgiving We Cannot Forget ~

Oh dear friend, today, how much
We want to join together in heart to ponder
The wonder, the treasure that we know
Remembering who and when
Gave up all in sacrifice
Years ago, to build for us our home

With survival, and their very breath at stake,
Our dear great grandparents
Gave up their all, their life
When time was sacrifice,
Their love burnt by each pain and joy
From dawn til fading light

And thus, we're granted by them now
Such goodness every day
From the gift of lives that gave
Their hearts, their love away
Did they see so far ahead for us
Each dawn to rise with souls so brave

So that this thanksgiving day
We could gather as one voice to raise
Thanks to God for our forefather's gift
Of wisdom as their guide
To found our nation on God's love
So in freedom we could live

In all that has been good and right
In caring for another, by walking in His light
These laws of goodness appear endangered
But, we shall not be rent
The very life blood shed for us
In thanksgiving, we cannot forget

God bless you
in all the love He has for you today
and always

Soft whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems 2007

How can I say thanks for the things you have done for me.
Things so undeserved, yet you give to prove your love for me.
The voices of a million angels could not express my gratitude.
All that I am and ever hope to be, I owe it all to Thee.
With His blood He has saved me. With His pow'r He has raised me.
To God be the glory for the things He has done.
