Thank you for my bed so soft
when others have no bed at all.
Thank you for the food I eat
when others beg upon the street.
Thank you for my toys so bright.
Thank you for my door at night,
shutting out the things that frighten me.
Thank you for my Mom and Dad
and for the way they make me glad.
They are so strong and very kind;
forgive me when I cling or whine.
They teach me things I need to know,
like how to pray and how to grow
into a loving, caring child.
And while I thank you for my home
For those I love and those I know.
Open my mind to those who seek
A loving hand to help them meet
The cares of life and help them find
A home as warm and safe as mine!
