      Thanks Giving

What I wish to simply say
Is, "Thank You, God, for every day,"
Simply spoken, simple words,
As natural as notes from birds
That fly and sing so cheerfully
So I, too, sing of You in me.

I sing of heights where I can soar
When my word's less and Your Word's more,
I sing of thankfulness for all
The gifts You give despite my fall
From favored breezes and clear skies
Made dark and cloudy through my eyes.

I sing of Love that I embrace
And give thereof which You replace
With even greater heights and lift
Whenever I give from Your gift,
I thank You for the Heaven-View
That keeps me flying up to You.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
