MOM’S CHRISTMAS POEM - 2005
Well, it’s Christmas time again,
seems time goes by so fast.
Your working on a Halloween costume
then suddenly, Thanksgiving’s already past.
I keep telling myself one of these days,
I’ll spend another Christmas in the snow.
I’ve even shopped for a ticket,
just can’t work up the courage to go.
Cold and I just don’t agree,
sunshine’s what I really like.
Besides, if I were to come up there,
I’d need mud & snow tires for my bike.
But, when the holidays are over
and I’ve broken all my new years resolutions,
when the weather’s warm and the flowers bloom,
I’ll come up with a better solution.
On Christmas day we’ll think of you
and we’ll all wish that you were here.
Unfortunately, we’ll just have to settle
for a Christmas toast with holiday cheer.
