Day 310 – A Christmas Thank You Poem

Christmas is the perfect time to get your family and friends close to you. This is the ceremony to forget the past enmities and establish to reinforce a new bond of love. This is the time when you can express your sincere gratitude for all those people who have been so good to you throughout. It is true that love and care needs no formal expressions, yet occasionally showing your gratitude will increase the warmth of your relation. Thank your loved ones this Christmas and let them know what they mean in your life.

Here is a poem that sends this message:

Thanking You

I thank you for the good times and I
thank you for the bad.
The times you made me happy
and those when I was sad.

I thank you for your good traits, your
loving caring ways.
When I felt the world would fall apart; you held it together those days.

I thank you for the gifts you gave, both
physical and not.
Some I may keep in
my heart and others on a box.

I thank you for all the ways that you showed
you did care.
Hearing my dreams and those sad cries no one else seemed to hear.

I thank you for your own dear light that
shone only from you.
It lit the darkness of my night when shadows filled my view.

I thank you for all the things that you made sure I knew.
The knowledge of your own long years, gained through hurt, and pain, and tears.

I thank you for the strength you gave me.
When you showed just how brave I’d have to be,
to survive the tests the world gave me.

And finally I thank you for the love of generations gone before.
Without you I couldn’t have made it through, so this
is my way to say, “I Thank You”

(Poet – Nikki S.Pendleton)
