Nothing beats

A kitchen’s glow

For warming bones

And melting snow,

For cozy chats

While dinner steams,

For sharing thoughts

And hopes and dreams.

Nothing beats

A table that fills

With smiling faces—

Laughter spills!

Around the table,

The Lord addressing,

We bow our heads,

Dad asks a blessing.

No, nothing beats

This time we share.

Oh, nothing beats

The love that’s there!
