- I gazed out toward an open field and watched nature at its
- and I really meant to thank you as I laid my head to rest.
- I made it safely through the night, and, yes, my family,
- and when I woke to meet the day I really meant to thank you.
- I felt the crisp cold winter air, as I stepped out in the

- and I really meant to thank you for all the blessings from
- But most of all I have to say your forgiveness is the best,
- for all the times that I neglected to thank you for the rest!
