The holidays are a particularly poignant time of year,
With friends and family gathering near,
We have fond memories of holidays past,
Amazed the years go by so fast.
In our minds a movie plays,
Of the many wonderful holidays,
We smell the turkey and taste the pies,
And sip hot apple cider with happy sighs.
Sometimes we travel, sometimes stay home,
So very fortunate if we’re not alone,
Good spirits and laughter fill the air,
With hugs and sharing everywhere.
Catching up on the latest news,
And remembering old family stories too,
It’s these special memories that remain in our hearts,
Softening the pain when loved ones depart.
Cook up a feast and say a prayer,
For our many blessings and be aware,
To cherish each moment and give praise,
For the blessing that love brings to our days.
