Season of Joy

Are you thinking of buying
A fine gift this year
For your mom or your sister
Or one you hold dear?

A sweater or jacket
Might keep them quite warm
But something much better
Won't fade or get torn

You're wondering surely
What should I get then?
Well, let me suggest something
That's more than a whim

A day spent together
In sweet reverie
Recalling the good times
And places you've seen

A box of fresh cookies
You baked on your own
Or a luncheon together
You prepare right at home

What could be better
Than trinkets and toys?
It's making sweet memories
In this Season of Joy

The gift of your time and yourself is the most precious gift of all.
