Thanksgiving Day

by Walter William Safar

Thank You Lord for the fertile land,
Thank You Lord for the food,
Thank You Lord for the love of a woman,
Thank You Lord for the little angels,
Thank You Lord for the beloved homeland;

But many good people aren't lucky enough
To spend Thanksgiving Day with their families,
There is no turkey on the table,
They don't see the glow in the eyes of the homeland,
Lord give us strength not to forget these good people;

Our dearest departed left us too soon,
Yet, thanks to You, dear Lord,
Memories never die,
But find their way into the hearts of people we hold dear,
Half illuminated by the reflection of the paradise valley;

Thank You Lord for the homeland,
Which will tomorrow become better and more just
Thanks to You,
For all the dreamers less lucky than us;
Thank You Lord for the spiritual power,
Thank You Lord for the faith in a better tomorrow,
For me to stumble many times
But rise again thanks to You, dear Lord.
