Thankful

I’m thankful for sunshine
and thankful for Spring
thankful for nature
with reason to sing
I’m thankful for music
and thankful for song
thankful for rhythm
to keep my soul strong

I’m thankful for birdsong
and thankful for voice
thankful for eloquence
giving me choice
I’m thankful for friendship
and thankful for life
thankful for sharing
this here with my wife

I’m thankful for being
and thankful for just
thankful for all that
God gives me in trust
I’m thankful for freedom
and thankful for bliss
thankful for choice
which gives me all this

Thankful and glad

We’ve had a lovely holiday
but it’s great to be back home
Back in Sussex by the sea
though many miles we’ve flown

We’ve sailed Iberian waters
up the Atlantic coast
Many lovely places seen
Unsure which we like the most

The climate has been wonderful
and it’s been hot most of the way
So it’s feeling chilly even though
it’s twenty-three today

There are many, many photos
to remember it all by
which we’ll always have to treasure
with a pleasurable sigh

For this we feel has truly been
the best holiday we’ve had
A thing for which we’re thankful
which has left us feeling glad
