Thanksgiving...Without You

It's the wonderful time for Thanksgiving, dear,
A favorite time we always enjoyed so well;
I will miss you so much this year,
It's lonely without you; more than I can tell.

It was a very sad day for me, dear,
When God looked down and called your name;
Even though I promise to hold you near,
Thanksgiving this year will not be the same.

Life for me continues on without you,
Not everything is simple as it was before;
I'm trusting in God for each day that is new,
Knowing you will never again walk through our door.

There's a small turkey browning in the oven,
Even though I'm alone, I'm thinking of you;
Cards have come from every niece, nephew and cousin,
They help to make Thanksgiving Special too.

This is your first Thanksgiving in Heaven,
It's my first one to be without you near;
Thank-you so much for each memory you have given,
God is with me and then dries each tear.

We will be together again someday, dear,
That time between us may not be long;
Each thought of you does give me cheer,
Angels surround me and keep my Faith strong.

You gave your love to everyone here on earth,
Today, I would love to whisper in your ear;
Telling you how God's Love buoys me on with Hope,
I miss you, but enjoy Thanksgiving Day in Heaven, dear.
