THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS
I have a list of people I know
All written in a book,
And every year at Christmas time
I go and take a look.
And that is when I realise
that those names are a part,
Not of the book with which they are written in,
But of my very heart.
For each name stands for someone
who has crossed my path sometime
And in that meeting they've become
a treasured friend of mine.
And once you've met some people
the years cannot erase,
The memory of a pleasant word
or of a friendly face,
So when i send this Christmas Card
That is addressed to you,
It's because you're on that list of
people I'm endebted to.
And you are one of many folk
who in times past I have met,
And happen to be one of those
whom I do not want to forget.
And whether I have known you for
many years or few.
In some way you have had a part
in shaping things I do.
This, The Spirit of Christmas that
forever and ever endures,
May it leave its richest blessings
in the heart of you and yours.
