I’ve wrapped a hundred presents
and tied as many bows.
I’ve visited different Santas
and heard the “Ho Ho Ho’s”.
I’ve sat through many reruns
but I always shed the tears
when Charlie Brown buys the Christmas tree
or when Frosty disappears.
I’ve untangled a mile of lights
and decorated a forest of trees.
I have ornaments and Christmas cards,
a supply of reds and greens.
I’ve spent lots of money on gifts
and waited hours in shopping mall lines.
What I’ve learned is the power of Christmas
is simply found in a child’s eyes.
