If I can just get through Christmas – said that 3 years in a row-
Things they are a changin’ more than he will ever know.
Gifts to be wrapped, cards to be sent-
My time is limited with him much time is spent.
We are told to turn down our holiday doing-
It’s hard to keep it simple without a’stewing!
I try to include him – much to no avail-
He tries to partake, but often leads to a fail.
He has little perception – he truly cannot see-
He used to delight in trimming the tree!
I’m selfish – Christmas is my favorite time of the year-
Being with our kids & grandkids, we do cheer!
Keeping in touch with old friends & new-
Our world is expanded if only for a month or two!
Baking cookies & candy & sending them off-
I don’t want to stop doing that nor will I scoff!
Celebrating our Lords Birthday on Christmas Eve-
Has been a family tradition, we thought we conceived!
Our Lord has blessed us was beyond measure-
Tone down Christmas? Well – it is my pleasure!!!!!
