Thoughts for Christmas...

Thoughts for Christmas

No need for presents around the tree
That’s not what Christmas means to me
It’s when we should stop and think of others
Family, friends and long lost brothers.

A time for thanks for what we’ve got
And thoughts of what our parents taught
About what’s important in our lives
Friends and families, husbands and wives

I don’t need gifts to prove you care
It’s all I need to know you're there
Though distance keeps some of us apart
You'll know that you are in my heart

A gift unwrapped of kindness beats
A host of parcels around my feet
Of things I neither want nor need
When there are hungry mouths to feed.
