- EVERYTHING I WANTED -
I sit in quiet reflection
 With a cup of Christmas tea
Remembering the gifts received
 From my dear family.

My grandkids gave unbridled zeal
 Wrapped tight in peals of glee,
My daughters graced me with respect
 Which meant the world to me.

My wife bequeathed her precious love
 For all eternity,
And Jesus gave an inner peace
 Which blessed the former three.
