Promises Kept

‘Twas the evening of Christmas and all through the day

We’d celebrated His Birth in a quiet sort of way.

Our dinner was good, simple fare like in past;

The kind that feeds comforting memories that last.


The neighbors were busy, the sunshine was bright!

We sat toasting our blessings in Vitamin D light.

Visions of past Christmases awakened our hearts;

Trips, paw prints, gifts and a few toys and carts


All add up to blessings that from near and far,

Travel over the rivers in brown wrap and jars,

Bringing sweet, sugarplum moments and smiles of cheer.

Promising love, laughs and music come same time next year!
