Well here it is December eight
So many items on your plate
All preparing for the 25 date
Certainly, you need not be late.
A gift for George, a boogie board
A soccer ball for a reward
A music box that plays a chord
Of course you’re sure you can afford.
That diamond necklace for her neck
Apple Watch, the latest tech
Wooden toys kids can’t wreck
All these gifts–what the heck?
Little Susie needs that doll
Then puppy Spot wants a ball
Grandma June could use a shawl
All available at the mall.
Gifts galore, spending plenty
Opened gifts, more than twenty
Dollars spent, even pennies
Why then do you feel so empty.
The money spent for such things
Tied with ribbons, even strings
Does much lasting comfort bring?
Search your heart for love that wings
