A Christmas Poem for You


'Twas less than three weeks now, until Christmas Eve
And Suzan was wishing this cold snap would leave!
Still she braved frigid temps, hung her sign up with care,
And now tags on The Wishing Tree danced in the air.
At night as she burrowed ‘neath the sheets on her bed,
She pulled up the duvet, ‘til it covered her head.
And if Max wanted out for a three a.m. crap,
She’d pretend she was sleeping and give Mike a tap.

Hibernation was something she thought she should try,
But then Old Saint Nick, surely’d pass them right by.
She began to act Grinchy when she had to go out,
She'd gripe and complain, and sometimes she’d pout.

As her mind mused on Santa and Grinches and Max,
She thought a great thought that stopped her in her tracks.
Though the weather was frightful beyond all good reason, 
It was love that would warm her in this festive season.

For when you share time, with your family and friends,
The love surely grows and the warmth never ends.
Love, friendship and laughter make life ever rosy,
And she thought about those who would help her stay cozy.

“There’s Tracy, and Mary, Gisele, Val, and Kristen, 
Christina, Lea, Lisa and Nancy that vixen!
There’s Krysta and Janet, Stephanie and Cherise,
Lesley, Catherine and Sue, Lori-Anne and Louise.

And so many more that I can’t list the rest,
But they’re all in my heart, I feel humbled and blessed.
From the Top of the Rock, to the notes on my Wall,
we laugh away, laugh away, laugh away all.”

So when you are thinking it’s cold and it’s dreary,
Just call up a friend and soon you’ll feel cheery.
They might even say, if the timing is right: 
“Merry Christmas dear friend, let’s go out for a bite!”
