"What do you do when this happens to you? / I take what God sends and see how this ends // What I will be as this happens to me"


A Love Song for Thanksgiving

At the turn of time on an eve this fair
With the sky this open the night this clear
The scent of windblown sagebrush on the air
And the intuition I belong here
Feeling strangely now I should be kissing
I find that old existential despair
At least for tonight has turned up missing

What do you do when this happens to you?
A situation I do not know well
Wary I wonder if this could be true
Since most often I spend the night in hell
I can only conclude a change of mood
Along with the season is the reason
The scent of windblown sagebrush on the air

Seems like Advent might be the advent of
Something like hope even something like love
At the turn of time on an eve this fair
As Thanksgiving comes I am thankful for
My life and I would like to live some more
What do you do when this happens to you?
I take what God sends and see how this ends

What I will be as this happens to me

"I take what God sends and see how this ends"; I see in you and the first poem I have read a beautiful young man who wants to love Thanksgiving and cherishes good memories and keeps on going, spreading his love around for all to love. But do not let others devour you. You are not a turkey!!! This Thanksgiving my love given was to my grown son; 51 eggrolls; what a delight for him and for me to see! "What do you do when this happens to you?" I lay on my bed and pray to the Lord if no one is around to hug. Hell at night but then there can be heaven awaiting you here on Earth as in your children.
