For most of this year past,
I’ve lived so far away,
But India is now remote,
I’m home for turkey day.
I am truly grateful,
For what India gave to me,
The gifts of love and friendship,
That will last eternally.
I’ve had such rich adventures,
For a lady past her prime,
And I trust that they’re not over,
Just on hold for a short time.
Now, I’ll celebrate with family,
And try not to gain a pound,
But it will be quite hard,
When Thanksgiving foods abound!
I give thanks to my Creator,
And ask His blessings far and near,
To every corner of this earth,
For those I love and hold most dear.
I offer special heartfelt thanks,
For next year will be so fine,
I’ll celebrate Thanksgiving,
With a first grandchild of mine!!
