The Spirit of Christmas

Friday Nov 12th, 2021


I have a list of people 

All written in a book-

And every year at Christmas time

I go and take a look.


And that is when I realize

That those names are all a part-

Not of the book they're written in

But of my very heart.


For each name stands for someone

Who has crossed my path some time-

And in that meeting they've become

A treasured friend of mine.


And once you've met some people

The years can not erase-

The memory of a pleasant word

Or a friendly face.


And you are one of many folk

In times past that I've met-

And happen to be one of those

I don't want ever to forget.


And whether I have known you

for many years or few

In some way you have had a part

In shaping things I do.
