Thank You :)

“What do you say?” their mother said
“Thank you” they said in rhyme
For that was what she expected
Them to say each time
A gift appeared or deed was done
For gratitude cost n’out
But if they didn’t say those words
Her voice would raise and shout
“What do you say” she would implore
“Why don’t you simply say –
‘Thank you so much for what you’ve done’
Be grateful every day”

For after all a thank you said
Brings cheer to any heart
With smile and words together it
Acknowledges the part
Of others going from their way
With kindness and with grace
To recognize the part they played;
Appreciation’s face
To notice what they said or gave
Or what they did for you
So don’t forget your gratitude
With a hearty thank you!
