Thanksgiving

I am Thankful

for the family I’m not with but know that I’ve always got

for the legs that have led me to this spot

for the hand that transmits my thought

for the battles I’ve won and lost but always fought

for the things I’ve learned and lessons I’ve taught

for all that I’ve dropped and all that I’ve caught

for that which I don’t know and the knowledge sought

for that which is sold and that which cannot be bought

for every one of life’s new mornings to take another shot

for the eyes that let me see whether I understand or not

for the lives I’ve touched even when I’m gone and I rot

for the family I’m not with but know that I’ve always got.
