Gifts from the Heart

December 21, 2020

It’s not the gifts tied up with lace,
The perfect wrap, each fold in place,

That makes a gift that stands apart,
But rather love that’s from the heart.

A gift can be a word or deed,
A selfless act to meet a need.

A cursive note that’s penned by hand
Shared from the heart can be quite grand.

Perhaps just time to sit and talk,
Stroll in the park, a leisure walk,

Is what we need and crave the most.
At Christmas time we love to host

An open house, a come and go,
For neighbors and the friends we know.

I miss the hugs, perhaps next year
We’ll once again have others near.
