Holidays sometimes are sad, when aches are in your heart
Wondering how in your childs life, you can be more a part
You think of how when they were young, playing with games and toys
All around the living room were laughs, fun, and joy

Then they are older, having their own family
They lead their own lives, you they rarely see
Sometimes they move far away, many thousands of miles
You miss them so very much, but still try to keep the smiles

You are grateful for the little time that they give to you
Still wishing one day they'll find time to include you in what they do
You know you've much to be thankful for, many friends and family
You just long for your child, more a part of your life to be

There are so many blessings you have, warm clothes, food, good place to sleep
Many others in our world don't have that, even warm clothes, they can't keep
So even if you may get real sad on this Thanksgiving Day
Let us be thankful for blessings we have, and our prayers not forget to say


revisited from last year

Yes. It's hard when they can't come for the holidays, that's when you miss them the most.

You are wise in the ways of the heart...surpassingly so. Thank you for such a beautiful demonstration of it.
