This Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving

There they sit at the table celebrating
The blessings they've been given
Though they've had many stuggles
They are always happy to have Thankgiving

As the plates are filled up
They bow their heads in prayer
Missing so many other loved one
They could only wish where there

Once the prayers are said
And they all call out "Amen"
Always grateful for all they have
As they eat the food at hand

They know there are others
Homeless with no bed to sleep
Not so lucky in this world
Just praying their souls to keep

Some others don't understand
They're from the "rich" side of town
As they walk past the homeless
They laugh and jester like a clown

some families will take in a few
Invite the homeless in for a meal
Some out of the kindness of their heart
Others do it to brag like its a big deal

But no matter where we are in life
Kindness should not just be one season
But from the love from in your heart
That should be the only reason

So as you sit down to eat
Your big Thanksgiven meal
Try to think of others too
To many go without a single meal

Reach deep inside your soul
What if that was you on the street
Going days without any food at all
Every bite would seem more like a treat

Like the ancesters before us
Be thankful for what we have today
For, you could be on the street tomorrow
Without a friend or any place to stay

So "We thank You Lord for this meal
This one we are about to receive at hand
As we thank you even more everyday
May You bless others as well, AMEN
