It’s Friday after Christmas –
The tree is standing there
With lights and ornaments sparkling
But underneath, it’s bare.
Presents all were given
To our loved ones with a smile,
But now the family’s leaving –
Traveling off many a mile.
We created quite a ruckus
As we laughed and reminisced.
Sisters and their families far away
Were in our hearts, but missed.
It’s a quiet Friday morning –
The family is mostly gone.
I sit alone with my memories
In this beautiful early dawn.
What memories of Christmas
Float in your heart this day?
I hope they all are happy ones –
As loved ones are safely on their way.
It’s not the Christmas presents
Given from under the tree;
It’s the present of love’s presence
That means the most to me.
God gave us His Son on Christmas morn.
We celebrate the JOY of Jesus’ birth.
Celebrate the gift of LOVE He gives to us
With our friends and family here on earth.
Merry Christmas weekend to you, my friends.
May Christmas live on in your heart.
May you always remember His gift of grace –
And pass that love and peace along – do your part!
Sending love and hugs…
See ya tomorrow.
