Gratitude. It's finding the blessings in each day. ~ Karen Morrissey

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes a sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates vision for tomorrow. ~ Melody Beattie

Thank you poems are an excellent way of voicing your thanks and appreciation to someone who has helped you through a difficult time or have played a special part in your life.

No-one is successful in life without the help of others and it is important to remember to be thankful to those people who have helped you along the way.

Poems can be used in a letter or card to express your gratitude to someone who has played an important role in your life like a Mom, a teacher, or a dear friend.


Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. ~ Maya Angelou

No one who achieves success does so without the help of others.
The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude. ~ Alfred North Whitehead

The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention ~ Oscar Wilde

Thank You My Friend

When life is overwhelming
And worries consume my days
When uncertainty turns to fear
And dreams beginning to fade

When hesitation limits my ability
And hope is as distant as the sky
Along you come with encouragement
Proving once again, that not all angels fly
Thank you for being an angel and my friend

Thanks For Always Being There!

Thank You
The world is moving faster now;
We're on a changing course.
But you have helped me deal with life;
You've been a stable force.

When I have had to follow;
New directions, you were there.
When the world was hard on me;
You always seemed to care.

When nothing held together;
Made the slightest bit of sense.
You have always helped restore;
My inner confidence.

Everyone needs someone;
Who's reliable and true.
Through the moments I've endured;
I'm grateful there was you.
Thanks for being my friend

You Brighten Up My World

You brighten up my world,
you always make me smile.
You say the nicest things,
with your special style.
You make me feel so loved,
with everything you do.
And you know just when to do them,
just because you're you.
Thank you for your gift,
It means so much to me.
When I look more into it,
the love is clear to see.
When love like that is given,
it always comes right back.
May you always have good fortune,
and never live for lack.

Give Thanks

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank You For Your Thoughts

Perhaps you sent a lovely card,
or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray
if so, we saw it there.
Perhaps you said the kindest words
as any friend could say.
Perhaps you said a little prayer
and thought of us today.
Whatever you did to console our hearts
we thank you so much
whatever the part.

I Am Thankful For

... the mess to clean up after a party
because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
... the taxes I pay
because it means I am employed.
... the clothes that fit a little too snug
because it means I have enough to eat.
... my shadow who watches me work
because it means I am out in the sunshine.
... the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot
because it means I am capable of walking.
... all the complaining I hear about our government
because it means we have freedom of speech.
... that lady behind me in church who sings off key
because it means that I can hear.
... lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning
and gutters that need fixing
because it means I have a home.
... my huge heating bill
because it means that I am warm.
... weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day
because it means that I have been productive.
... the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours
because it means that I am alive.

~ Nancy J. Carmody
