Just a little Christmas poem written to my mom a few years back.


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.

You can't be all places at all times, but I know they all think of you there in their snow, as you think of them there in your sun shine during the Christmas season. That's always when hearts turn toward home and the people you love where ever they are.

Very nicely done, Give your Mom a big thumbs up for me.

Dick I can't say anything more than what the others expressed buddy, for although this is a great need to go tell your Mom in person the words in your heart. I too lost both parents when I was only in my early twenties and I tell you if they were distance, no weather, no schedule and no job could keep me from going to see it this year buddy.

A wonderful poem, but I'm sure your Mom must have been very disappointed not to have you that year. If you are lucky enough to have your parents still on this earth, see them when you can, as Linda said you never know when its there time to go.

Sweet poem!
Reviewed by Linda Hill 12/5/2010

Make that trip. We never know how long our parents will live. I lost my Mother when she was only 39 years old. I'd give anything to be able to hop on a bus to see her. The moment is lost to me...but not to you. Make that trip.

Many blessings to you,
