"Christmas With Friends"

The snowflakes are lovely,
Though 'Snowmen' are few;
Fond mem'ries sustain us,
Now isn't that true?

Recall the huge mantle
All hung with our socks?
We played on the floors
With our dolls and our blocks.

The popcorn we strung wrapped
Around the whole tree;
The games that we played
Aren't on your TV.

We all could play checkers,
Or skate or jump rope;
Our simple lives thrived
On much kindness and hope.

The foods were all splendid--
Sweet holiday fare--
We dine like that daily
With never a care.

The REAL CHRISTMAS taught us
to follow a Star;
We've traveled great pathways
And now here we are.

We sing Alleluias
The praise never ends;
But nothing compares with
The LOVE of our FRIENDS.

We're blest to have found this
Our haven of joy,
God bless thankful
For one tiny Boy."

  11. The poem is so true of my childhood, and most likely many others our age. Too much of anything is not really a good thing is it? But love, true love, there is never too much of that. I am praying for you , your loss of a true love here on earth is a very big loss, leaving a very big hole in your life & heart. No matter right now you will see him in eternity, right now he is missed dearly.Prayers for you Sandra.

  12. Sandra thank you for showing how sometimes I take a lot of things for granted including my Love always being there with me or vise versa. Learning to keep some special time for us.

  13. You all have had snow?!? Not so much as a flake here!

    Your poem is wonderful!

  14. Sandra -

    It is you who have made my path with the Lord bearable to me. Thank you.

  15. Enjoyed the poem . . .

    I wish you a Good Morning and New Year . . .
    Be well . . .
    Love, Lynne

    Love to you dear, always ~ Katie
