what it is… that makes this house a home…

18 Dec

It’s the warm glow of the wood stove…
it’s the pine cones with gold glittering so,
it’s the hot gushy chocolate chip cookies,
that begins to make this house a home…

it’s the midnight rendezvous for a glass of milk,
it’s going on starlit nights in the woods,
it’s Christmas time coming once again,
& you’ve done more than everything you could…

Mom, your blue eyes glow like the sky,
your smile is a warm sight on a cold hike,
you & Dad dancing in the living room,
even makes me, come close to happy cries.

Thank you for every little detail,
all the tiny embellishments you do…
but, the greatest gift this Christmas,
will be spending it here, with Dad & you…

    That’s what Christmas is all about. Not the presents, but family. Great job, as usual.
