Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
The year is filled with holidays,
Always seems to be a reason
For celebrating something
Each and every single season...
But you can take the other ones
And wad them in a ball.
Just let me have Thanksgiving. It's
My favorite one of all.
New Year's eve can make me grieve.
The weather gets much colder
And I don't need reminders that
The world and I are older.
Easter is another. Doesn't
Anyone think it's funny
That we celebrate with colored eggs
Laid by some hairy bunny?
Valentine's Day? Please go away!
Call me a fuddy-duddy
But Cupid was quite stupid
All those years I had nobody.
Halloween can vent my spleen
With its costumes, masks and such.
If I want to be scared witless,
Evening news is bad enough.
Christmas time's no friend of mine
Every time it nears.
I don't believe the three Wise Men
Bought their gifts at Sears!
But Thanksgiving is a special time;
No silly masks to get.
No futile search for colored eggs,
No reason to go in debt.
No Cupid's arrow through my heart,
No reminders I'm still living,
Just a special day with special friends...
Thank God we have Thanksgiving!
