Here's To All The Christmas's Mom
Here's to all the Christmas's Mom
The ones when I was very small
And Christmas held all the glitter
And delight of every child's wonder.
The ones when I was a gloomy teen
Tucked into my own thoughts
In my own self centered world.
The ones as a young adult
Unsure of where I stood
But always loved and accepted
Within my family's arms.
To the married years
When I needed to balance
Several families and keep everyone happy.
To now when it is just you and I again
Each of us forging forward
You in your senior years
Doing all you can to make the Christmas lovely
Sometimes pushing yourself too hard
And me trying to find my way again
Single and middle aged
Back on the shelf.
It's Christmas morning
The birth out our saviour.
How glorious is that!
Let us savour this time
And be grateful for family
And loved ones
Young and old alike.
