Happy Holidays to One and All

I came across this poem many years ago. I don’t know who wrote it (if you do, please let me know). Each Christmas I’d print this out and stick a copy in each card I sent to family or friends. This year I share it with you, dear readers, in appreciation for your loyalty, comments and kinship.

May this holiday season be rich with good food, the warmth and comfort of family and/or friends, and maybe a nice snowfall!

The Christmas Card List

There is a list of folks I know

All written in a book,

And every year at Christmas time

I go and take a look.

And that is when I realize

Those names are all a part

Not of the book they’re written in,

but deep inside my heart.

For each name stands for someone

Who has touched my life sometime,

And in that meeting they’ve become

A special friend of mine.

I really feel that I’m composed

Of each remembered name,

And my life is so much better

Than it was before they came.

Once you’ve known that “someone”

All the years cannot erase

The memory of a pleasant word

Or of a friendly face.

So never think my Christmas cards

Are just a mere routine

Of names upon a list that are

Forgotten in between.

For when I send a Christmas card

That is addressed to you,

It is because you’re on the list

Of folks I’m indebted to.

And whether I have known you

For many years or a few,

The greatest gift the Universe can give

Is having friends like you.
