We need to be thankful to make our day complete
Many big things are often mentioned
health, family, friends
But so many people don’t have these
for what should they give thanks?
A walk in a neighborhood where there is no gunshot
speaking a grievance that is heard and respected
a hand extended when they stumble
a warm smile on an icy day
a sign pointing them in the right direction
words that express the innermost feelings
by strangers who understand.
Even without friends and family, these can help complete the day
and make us all thankful one more time.
