A poetic view of the world and what should be most important during the Christmas Holiday Season. Enjoy!


Twas the week before Christmas
And all across the land,
Few people were searching
For that present so grand.
With the economy shifting
Seemingly overnight.
Job losses and house markets
Spiraling out of sight.
The government steps in
To offer a hand,
With money and bail outs
Upon demand.
With pockets now stuffed,
Officials feeling much better.
All of a sudden
There came a letter.
It was addressed to the nation,
One question to ponder,
During a time of season
And minds filled with wonder.
What do you want this Christmas day?
Then someone spoke up,
This is what he did say,
“To have eyes that know me
Would be a thrill,
And hands to welcome me
As I climb the next hill.
To have hearts to warm me
As I walk through the door.
As loved ones surround me,
How could I want more?”
Now, I don’t know about you,
But I think this is the key.
So, Merry Christmas to you,
And to your family!
