I will take this Thanksgiving day
To turn my thoughts to you Dad
To thank you for the home you gave
For all the things we had.
I think about the treasured years
Too quickly, gone for good
It seems like only yesterday,
I'd go back if I could.
A time when you was always there,
No matter what the weather.
Always strong when things went wrong
you held our lives together.
You strived so hard from day to day
And never once complained.
With steady hands, you worked so hard
And kept the family name.
You taught us that hard work pays off,
"You reap just what you sow".
you said that "If you tend your crops,
Your field will overflow".
My life has been wonderful
You taught me how to give
In Your firm and steadfast way
you taught me how to live.
You dwell among the angels now
You left us much too soon
You glide across a golden field
Above the harvest moon.
I see you in the summer rain,
You ride upon the wind
And when I'm feeling beaten down
You pick me up again.
I love and miss you Dad,
Forever and a day
This is the 4th Thanksgiving that you are not hear in body, but you are here in spirit.
