Thanksgiving for Gracie, My Cockateel
"Hello, God! I'm all alone.
I wish, sometimes, I could come home.
The kids are gone - can't you see?
There's no one here to love me.
So,please, tell me what to do,
then maybe I won't be so blue..."
I guess I'll go to the pet store
to see what they have to explore.
In the store there was a cage -
birds of every color and age.
So my hand I did put in,
and then I found me a new friend!
"Thank you, Lord" is what I say,
as I fold my hands to pray.
"Now I won't feel so blue -
and bless my new friend from you too!"
