The front was simple...just "Merry Christmas".
But what was inside was a poem my son had written and one of the greatest gifts I have received...
When I was young
You made sure songs of Nat King Cole were sung,
The tree was well decorated,
And I was well loved,
Everything I wanted you found a way to get,
I think because you loved to see
My eyes happily lit,
Now that I’m older that same love is true
You constantly keep giving
Though there’s no gift for you,
When I can change that believe I will,
So you can feel my love,
As yours I feel
But until then you will have to settle for my love,
Which will stay as pure
And as flightful as a heaven bound dove.

Here's wishing you a memorable Holiday season!
