The Holiday season is a bittersweet time for me,
there are many memories in my mind to see,
I have lived a very full and happy life,
With just a little bit of strife.
As the holidays draw near,
Those memories become very clear.
The excitement of the "Night Before Christmas" tale,
pages read by each with much avail.
"Twas the Night before Christmas,
and all through the house"
I started to read as you listened with glee
and each read the next page so we could all see
what the story told us about that man of red
so that you would have that image in your head.
As you drifted to sleep on that wonderous night,
hoping to see that sleigh take flight.
I know you all peeked to see the sight,
And always there was a pile to your delight.
The littlest one always arose first,
complaining of thirst.
We all knew you were just exicited
and oh so decided
to wake everyone up so early in the morn,
to have the oldest complain and warn,
that is was way tooooo early to get up
So please go play with the pup!
The boy, was just as eager,
although his attitude was meager.
He didn't want to let us all know,
that he couldn't wait to go below
and marvel at the gifts and toys,
just like all those mishevious little boys.
Of course the stockings came first,
and then a beverage to quench your thirst.
Some Hot Chocolate for one,
Hot tea and cinnamon toast, now done.
Over to the tree to dig in,
with sis in her Santa hat and a big grin,
we were ready to begin.
One for you, one for me;
Oh, all the presents under the tree.
Just when you thought we were done
There was that announcement of more fun,
Fun to find that last big gift,
You always got the drift.
One by one, you found that surprise,
and always with sparkling eyes,
You all opened with anticipation,
that very last gift without reservation.
Yes the memories of Christmas mornings, gone by,
I just smile and let out a huge sigh.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year
My wonderful Children.
