Looking for a Thanksgiving Day poem to encourage and remind yourself and others to be thankful for every blessing that you have. Thanksgiving Day comes once a year but we should give thanks each and every day of the year.
Through life's changing scenes and sorrows,
Disappointments, hopes and fears,
Sad todays but glad tomorrows
Share alike the passing years;
Passing years, like spectres gliding
Thro' the shadows of the night,
Flit across our vision, hiding
Scenes of long ago from light.
But there comes this thought to cheer us
As through life we wend our way.
Friends we love the best are near us
On the glad Thanksgiving day.
Each decade of time assures us,
Tho' with burdens life is dear;
Dreams of future joys allure us
Onward as life's goal we near,
Not in solid phalanx moving.
Nor like armored knights of yore
Over fallen victims proving
Victors in the art of war,
But in peaceful, glad reunion
Business cares are laid away,
Friends we love in sweet communion
Share our glad Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving is a day to reflect on
With those we hold dear
And to give thanks and pray
For all the best in the coming year.
How blessed we are to be surrounded by love
This Thanksgiving day we give thanks to above.
