gratitude poem, without number

we tried to keep track: this caring person
called at the house this one sent flowers
this one brought food this one wrote, e-mailed,
phoned, this one prayed or chanted or arranged
a meditation which literally circled the world
this one hugged actually everyone hugged
though many from a distance whole groups
participated in helping we want to thank all
of you we need to thank you with written
words of gratefulness, of our love for
your love and caring, but we get muddled
we do not always know for sure who
sent the perfect lilies who brought ginger
cookies and each of you said such special
things. we want you to know you’re all
thanked appreciated loved even if some
of you may never receive our direct words
