Loved ones present and close by my side
Smiling, singing and going in stride

Help decorate, bake, share some spiced tea
Straightening rooms, just being with me
Setting nice plates, polished utensils
Finding those things, making it special
Gathering ‘round old fashioned table
Eat and enjoy much as we’re able
Laughing at jokes that others don’t get
Talking of days together well spent
Presents opened, wrappings cleared away
Bows and cute bags we’ll use a new day
Little needles prickled our socked feet
Thanks little tree you looked really neat
Time passes by Christmas Day’s gone
Quickly more days are waiting to dawn
Thinking back at the fun times we had
Hoping our gifts made everyone glad
Realizing now our blessings will be
Loved ones present, our special family
Reminds me of days gone by. Very nice.
Love this. It describes exactly how I feel this time of year.
This is very sweet. Takes me right into your holidays.
Well done. I read through twice just thinking how simple the really very best things in life are.
