My Thanks I Give

by Bill Turner

I am thankful this year
As you are in my life
I will not shed a tear
Nor feel the usual strife

You have given me love
Touching my heart
An angel sent from above
Promising to never part

I am thankful for my son
A wise and strong young man
Knowing in his heart you are the one
He has become your biggest fan

He sees what you do for me
The way you have touched my soul
Knowing you have set me free
Making me feel whole

Stephanie I am thankful for you
Blessed by all that you give
Touched by all that you do
Loving you for as long as I live
