Silent Tree Music - Song Lyrics
( Thanksgiving song lyrics )
A WORD OF THANKS
Copyright © 2013 - MickTerry.com
A WORD OF THANKS for this moment, for the fact that I'm alive,
for the life I've lived and the days that are yet to come.
A WORD OF THANKS for my fam'ly who some how helped me survive,
for the teachers and all the lessons that I have learned.
A WORD OF THANKS for the chances and the choices that I've had,
opportunities that have made what I have become.
A WORD OF THANKS for the friendships that would last through good & bad,
for their love and faith, their support and all their concern.
A WORD OF THANKS for the beauty that surrounds me ev'ry day
if I only take precious time to just see and hear.
A WORD OF THANKS for the flavors and the smells I sense each day
that enhance what I'm taking in that can fuel my life.
A WORD OF THANKS for the courage and the faith that I respect,
for the strength and love that have seen me go past my fears.
A WORD OF THANKS for this body 'though I've cursed some parts with neglect.
It has gotten me this- far even 'though I didn't treat it right.
A WORD OF THANKS for the loving, some of which I didn't see.
Some I didn't choose to accept, some I did return.
A WORD OF THANKS for the miracles that brought you to be with me,
for the chance to give to your life, for what you've given to mine.
A WORD OF THANKS for the talents and the skills with which I'm blessed,
for the things still yet to be done and the lessons learned.
A WORD OF THANKS for this lifetime. Hope I didn't make too much of a mess.
If I get to come back again, that would be just fine.
A WORD OF THANKS for this moment, for this chance to be alive ...
