The Treasure of Christmas
What is the essence of Christmas?
Is it the presents, the tinsel, the toys,
The music, the lights
Or the laughter of happy girls and boys?
Recommended Stories For You
I think it’s our time to remember
The joys of Christmas past
When we were just little children
In a universe mysterious and vast.
Remember the call of your mother
To come see the Christmas tree.
The joy of sledding the snow covered hill
So happy, so wild, so free!
The bark and the wag of your own special pup
Cookies and chocolate in your favorite cup.
All of these memories and many more
Are the presents you have in your private store.
To treasure and love on those quiet days
When the past has gently slipped away!
