A Thanksgiving Poem


Family and friends gather round

With laughter and memories

Card games and jokes

Or just snuggling, watching movies

The women cackle in the kitchen

Making fun of the men

But really we’re all quite happy

To be together again

Mothers, sisters, fathers, brothers,

Cousins, nieces, and nephews, too

Grandparents spoil the kids

While the dog chews on our shoes

The smell of delicious food fills the air

We have more than enough, as always

We’ll spend all day eating and playing

And we’ll have leftovers for days

There are many reasons why we do this

On this national holiday

We do it to relax and rejoice

In our own special way

We do it to help us remember

All the blessings that we share

And to share those blessings with others

To show our love and care


We do it to celebrate family, love, life

The things we hold so dear

We do it to give thanks

For being blessed with another year
