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.

3. Hot Chocolate


Winter isn’t winter,
Without a nice hot drink,
A large vat of something,
Sweet and soothing,
Topped off with mint,
And mallows too,
To keep you warm,
From your hat to your shoes.

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.

Words


Words can hurt,
Words can break,
Words can mend,
Words can make,
Words are strong,
Words are weak,
Words are soft,
Words are bleak,
Words don’t lie,
Words don’t cheat,
Words don’t sing,
Words don’t speak,
Words shouldn’t sting,
Words shouldn’t bite,
Words shouldn’t be wrong,
Words shouldn’t be right,
Words are the messenger,
The message, the point,
Words are more powerful,
Than sword or arrow point,
Words speak volumes,
But say very little,
Words can portray,
But also betray,
Words can inform,
But as easily deform,
Choose your words carefully,
Judge every one,
And remember that emotion,
Is linked to each and every one.

Clouds


I look below the plane,
And then blankets roll over the land,
The long never ending see of white,
Like a warm coat for the earth,
And like something in a dream.

0. Christmas Countdown


It’s that time again,
To ring it in,
Spread the cheer,
And mark the end of the year.
***
Get your elf shoes on,
The tree out,
Dust off the lights,
And get excited.
***
Return to here,
On December the 1st,
For a daily poem,
Like a chocolate in a calendar.
