I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Years. Be safe.
I have a list of folks I know, all written in a book
And every year when Christmas comes, I go and take a look.
And that is when I realize, that these names are a part.
Not of a book they’re written in, but of my very heart.
For each name stands for someone, who has crossed my path sometime,
And in that meeting they’ve become, the Rhythm in each Rhyme.
And while it sounds fantastic, for me to make this claim,
I really feel that I’m composed, of each remembered name.
And while you may not be aware, of any special link,
Just meeting you has changed my life, a lot more than you think.
For once you’ve met somebody, the years cannot erase,
The memory of a pleasant word, or of a friendly face.
So never think my Christmas cards, are just a mere routine,
Of names upon a Christmas list, forgotten in between.
For when I send a Christmas card, that is addressed to you,
It’s because you are on the list, of folks whom I’m indebted to.
For I am but the total, of many folks I’ve met,
And you happened to be one of those, I prefer not to forget.
And whether I have known you, for many years or few,
In some way you have had a part, in shaping things I do.
And every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew,
The best Gift Life can offer, is meeting folks like you.
And may the spirit of Christmas, that forever endures,
Leave its richest blessings in the hearts, of you and yours.
