Keeping the Joy

 

Christmas is a time
To love and to share
A season to give
And show how we care

~~~

A chance to express
The devotion we feel
To family and friends
What we may not reveal

~~~

While dashing about
Going here and there
Ruled by schedules and tasks
Throughout the year

~~~

So letís take the time
On this blessed day
To share love from the heart
That is here to stay

~~~

With children and grandchildren
Our real gifts in life
Our relatives, close friends
Our husbands, our wives

~~~

Letís be sure to remember
To let them all know
Their importance to us
By letting it show

~~~

Loving words, a hug
Some time well spent
Will make this season
A joyous event

~~~

And when the treeís down
And the gifts put away
Letís keep the joy going
All year, every day!

~~~

Have a wonderful Christmas!
