With abiding love for each other,
I'm sending this note to remind
That you are always on my mind.
But I feel especially close today
Because Christmas is on the way,
A season of love and cheer is here
So naturally I thought of you dear.
I've thought of cheery words to say
About us and the coming holiday,
I wanted to write witty words to quip
About Christmas and our friendship.
But I can't find the words to express
How you have given me happiness,
Holiday joy is only a season through
But everyday is a joy, knowing you.
I may fill pages with lines and rhyme
One sweet flowery word at a time,
I may ramble on about being your friend
But it all reads I love you at the end.
So I'm skipping all those clever lines
There are so many puzzling kinds,
Like a gift under a Christmas tree,
You can't see what's inside from me.
I can't write completely of my emotions
I'm sure the ink would fill oceans
So I'm simply saying I love and cherish you,
Not just for a season but the year through.
It's Christmastime and merriment abounds
Around us are beautiful sights and sounds
And as one dear friend to another would say,
Have a most wonderful Christmas Day.
