I went to the Harley dealer to find a special stocking to hang for my hubby with not too much luck as last year they cost $50.00 so never sold any and decided not to have them this year, however he had a few there that were about 6 inches high and gave me one. I guess it will have to do. I have so much to give to him, my heart, soul, kisses and love to hold.

A Stocking To Hang By The Tree
November 28, 2008
By: Rose Marie Rideout

You’ve filled my heart and soul with joy,
You’ve given me every single toy.
I want to give you all the same from me,
So heres a stocking to hang by the tree.

Inside it has all my heart and soul,
My kisses and love for you to hold.
My dreams, my hopes and my every joy,
My smiles and tears for you, I gently cry.

I’d like to park a brand new Harley,
Underneath the Christmas tree.
With a huge red bow attatched to a tag,
Saying to you Darling just from me.

You give me so much all year long,
My every wish, is as complete as a love song.
For once I want to give you the same from me,
So heres a stocking to hang by the tree.

It has my scent and my smile too,
It holds my heart, with a love so true .
It has a wish and a hope for you,
That all I give will have to do.

For this year is a start of a new life,
Your stocking holds everything dear from your wife.
I want to give you the world as you’ve given me,
All I have to offer is in a stocking to hang by the tree.
