Not just for a beautiful sky
Or a sunny day
When all we wanted to do was cry.
Thankful is kind and unassuming
He delivers his promises
on beds of roses
And sometimes when courage is only looming.
Thankful is a big Turkey dinner
And smiling faces
To make you feel like a winner.
Thankful has more to do.
Thankful holds you when you can’t stand
Thankful will melt your heart
And hold your hand.
Thankful opens doors
Enticing you with suggestion
That “when it rains it pours”.
Thankful will push you beyond happy dreams
When nothing is as it seems.
Thankful is mindful of “the after”.
Thankful is light and dark
He parades in designer shades
Yet never leaves without a mark.
Thankful is your very blunt friend.
Knows we are not the same
That we won’t always win the game.
