Sitting here on Thanksgiving day
thinking of those far away
of son’s and daughter and my sister too
though ten years older and still going strong
as a part of this world she still belongs.
My son’s in England are both grown
and have children of there own
to get together on this day
and celebrate in their own way
but for them, not a Holiday.
My daughter and her family
will get together to celebrate
as they have been here long enough
to enjoy the customs and the way
to celebrate Thanksgiving day.
Me, I have friends to see
to celebrate in the American way
eat turkey, drink wine and watch a game
with pumpkin pie tasting so supreme
good friends together to cheer on our team.
