25. Turkey and Wine


Christmas time,
Turkey and Wine,
Parents mumbling Christmas rhymes.
There cake in the fridge,
Queen’s speech on the news,
Time to rejoice all the good we can do,
It’s a time for drinking,
A time for overeating,
A time for napping,
off all the food we have eaten.

 

 

24. Sweet Old Saint Nic


He’s climbing in your window,
Laying your presents out,
Bringing joy to your house,
And not waking your kids up,
He’s made his list,
And he has checked it twice,
He knows who is naughty,
And who has been nice,
Here comes Saint Nic,
All quiet and sweet,
Sneaking around,
While everyone sleeps.

9. Happy Hanukkah


It’s Hanukkah,
And I know what I wanna da’
It’s a time for remembrance,
It’s a time for enlightenment.
***
Even if you don’t observe it,
We have all heard it,
And so I raise this to everyone,
Have a happy Hanukkah.

8. Christmas Shop


Chop Chop,
Time to shop,
Christmas is on the way,
***
Quick Quick,
Get your pick,
For the holiday,
***
Run Run,
Get it done,
Don’t let it slip away.

6. Decorate That Tree


Get the boxes out,
Blow off the dust,
Clean out the lites,
Buff the tinsel up,
Open the tree,
Argue about baubles,
And who does the fairy,
Or is it a star,
Who give a care,
By the end of today,
Let’s just have one up anyway.

1. The First Chocolate


It’s that first crisp morning,
When you sneak out of bed,
Head down the stairs,
Grab your calendar,
And hear that door tear,
underneath is that sweetest of treats,
The first seasons chocolate,
There for you to eat.

This Old Heart of Mine


Given the world,
I would give it away,
Just to spend my time,
Laying next to you each day.

*

I have had many days to myself,
And not one of them compares,
To a single hour with you.

**

But you don’t see me,
And although I may be a young guy,
My heart is old and waiting for you,
I just want to love you in the old fashioned way,
Long nights laying together,
Just in each others company.

**

Life in my mind,
Seemed easier before,
But now I spend every day,
Just longing for you to be with me.

*

What I would give for just a kiss,
To feel your lips on mine,
And the warmth of your breath,

**

But you don’t see me,
And I am starting to think,
You never will,
My heart will forever long for yours
But it knows the drill,
Smile and move on like before.

*

But you don’t see me,
And although I may be a young guy,
My heart is old and waiting for you,
I just want to love you in the old fashioned way,
Long nights laying together,
Just in each others company.

*

Maybe one day you will see me,
But until then I must wait,
And live tomorrow as another day.
