Thanksgiving Memories

By Bud Lemire

I enjoyed sitting down, at Thanksgiving with family
Now I can look back, at the cherished memory
Mom, Dad, John, Terry, and me
Turkey was the best it could be

Potatoes with gravy, and dressing too
Cranberry sauce, either one will do
Lime jello with carrots and pineapple inside
Green and black olives, that were too hard to hide

There were leftovers, after a meal like this one
Turkey sandwiches to eat, was the most fun
Those were the days, I still remember
Way back then, on a cold day in November

I'm never as thankful, as remembering family on this day
At the old family home, and the games we would play
My sister Nancy came over, we'd play games for awhile
Thinking of those days, always brings me a smile

Times keep on changing, and people pass away
It's best to enjoy them, every moment of each day
When it comes to us, each day that we're living
Enjoy each year with family, and have a Happy Thanksgiving

Author Note:

Life changes, and time moves ahead. But the memories are
great to look back on. The smiles, the company you kept,
the food at Thanksgiving, the games we played, and that
special time in life when you had no worries at all. You
just enjoyed all the foods that your family made every
