Here is yet another old Christmas poem:
AN OLD CHRISTMAS CARD:
I was looking through some boxes long forgotten
When I came across an old Christmas card.
I stared in amazement and emotion.
Believe me the tears to conceal was hard.
It was the first Christmas card I received,
From my late husband many years ago.
Although I'd only known him for a short while.
I knew then how much I loved him so.
As I looked inside the card,
The familiar handwriting came back to me.
Thinking of the fun and laughter,
Also our children three.
How long I sat there I could only hazzard a guess,
This Christmas card to me so sentimental.
It was coincidence at the time,
As I sent him one identicle.
Many, many years on it's still intact.
Just as the day it was given to me.
Oh yes! the emotion was still there.
Yet it brought comfort and happiness to me.
