Rated: E · Poetry · Inspirational · #1196972
Some times we take our selves for granted. Be thankful for who you are.

As you gather round the table
for the feast you prepared today

You will think of this past year
and you will start to pray

“I’ve had sadness, I’ve had sorrow
I’ve had trouble, I’ve had pain”

Does my life have any meaning
and what have I to gain?

Well I will tell you what I think,
and what you mean to me
After I am finished then let your soul
be free.

Did you share a smile with someone
Did you laugh and have some fun?
Did you let someone feel special when
their day was finally done?

Did you pass along a kind word
Did you praise instead of scold?

Did you reach out a helping hand
to lighten someone’s load?

Did you take the time to LISTEN to
a friend who was in need?
Then your life is FULL of Meaning
for you are a Friend in DEED!
