Thanksgiving is a special day
we celebrate each year.
Throughout our country far and wide
are loved ones we hold dear.
Some go to grandads and grandmas,
others to moms and dads.
Then there are those, whom God only knows,
are alone and lonely and sad.
It began long ago when a few grateful people,
after harvest time had come,
Came together and made a great feast,
