A thanksgiving prayer

Each will find, his own festival ideal  
the joy to ride the heights, as on a Ferris Wheel  
to join the celebration, give respect and kneel  
remember all those gone before, to be revered
 
Gods silver service, hid behind the clouds  
the years of conflict that weaved the silken thread  
spilt the blood ,of those that lie beneath the shroud  
lost courage, where we owe a lasting debt  
 
Warm hands each crossed upon the heart  
days of anticipation, appreciation, just to partake  
gratitude for life's gifts, wishes all earmarked  
the precious icing is faith upon the cake  
 
The creature comforts we shower on our lives  
snug PJ's, pleasures drugs to suit all tastes  
burning hearth, warming food and friends arrived  
the Founding Fathers laid the blocks, to lay upon our plates  
 
Now the time, to say your grace in hearty thanks  
that you still have the gift of choice  
diversity is a rainbow, if we don't close our ranks  
just join our hands and sing with just one voice  
 
Be ours to graciously accept with prayer  
a table weighed with trust and hope displayed  
Thanksgivings truer meanings, when it's shared  
sustenance for the spirit, we all crave
