Thank You Sir

A kind and simple thank you Sir
Is all I have to give
Although 'I owe you so much more'
In the affirmative

For those who have lost their life,
A leg, an eye, or a hand—
If only we could give it back;
But there's no way we can.

So I'll just light a candle here
With wishes bright and fair
That somehow you will be just fine
Within the Father's care.
And never are you far away
But in our daily prayer.
