Gift

Give me not gifts
of silver or of gold
Give me something
to keep me warm from the cold.

I yearn not for baubles
or gadgets with lights
I yearn that we each
fight the good fight.

If you’d thought of a gift
to put under my bed,
Give something to someone
who is homeless instead.

Your gift to me
should be Love for all men
My gift to you
Is to love you again and again.


Merry Christmas to all! Peace and Goodwill to everyone!
