Thanksgiving Eve<= o:p>

Words & Music= by Bob Franke


It's so easy to dream of the days gone by

It's a hard thing to think of the times to come

But the grace to accept ev'ry moment as a gift

Is a gift that is given to some



What can you do w= ith your days but work & hope<= /b>

Let your dreams b= ind your work to your play

What can you do w= ith each moment of your life

But love til you've loved it away

Love til you've loved it away


There are sorrows enough for the whole world's end<= /o:p>

There are no guarantees but the grave<= /p>

And the life that I live & the time I have spent

Are a treasure too precious to save


As it was so it is, as it is shall it be

And it shall be while lips that kiss have breath

Many waters indeed only nurture Love's seed

And its flower overshadows the power of death=
