Gratitude

Mother and father
Grandparents I knew
Sisters and brother
Collie dog too
Cousins and aunts
Uncles, uncle Hugh
Some of my treasures
I share now with you

School friends and parish
Faith in the pew
Football promising
Cup Final too
Meeting with Margaret
Michael my son
Grandsons around me
Endless their fun

Home here in Stirling
Comfy and warm
Free bus pass in Scotland
Waitrose has charm
Making my soda bread
Mum’s recipe
The Queen even likes it
She had some for tea

No more can I ask
No more do I want
My health is okay
Keep walking! The chant
I am genuinely grateful
For the blessings named here
Long to enjoy them
And maybe a beer
