I give no thanks for war.
Nothing for hate either.
I give no thanks for betrayal,
Abuse of any kind is not on my list for appreciation.
Cancer, so close to me this year, remains I thanked for the loss of a dear friend.
Accidental death far from home and loved ones, no thanks.
Death, dismemberment, injury in war, nope. Is this a redundant wish?
Heartbreak leads the list for me, though mine remains intact, patched, but healthy.
Mental disability and/or homelessness provoke no happiness in my heart.
Abandonment, whether child or pet, is harsh.
What am I thankful for?
Your love, my dearest, your love.
And my love for you.
