Merry Christmas Neighbor Dec 2003

 

Merry Christmas to you my neighbor –

the ones I know so well.

A friendly hug now and then

we stop and chat,

catching up on health, family

and neighborhood news.

Or we drive by with a wave

that says more than just hello.

You know I care

and we are there for each other.

Everyday I pass your house

I wish you love.

 

Merry Christmas to you my neighbor –

the ones I know only in passing.

We talk about the weather

and you pet my dog, Merlin

when we meet on the street.

I know life has not been easy lately.

I’m sorry I wasn’t there for you.

But everyday I pass your house

I wish you joy.

 

Merry Christmas to you my neighbor –

the ones I do not know.

I have waved to you as you drive by

while I walk Merlin.

You always wave back

and if I was feeling lonely

I no longer did.

I have heard you are feuding

with your neighbors

(the ones I know in passing told me so)

But I have no gripe with you.

Everyday I pass your house

I wish you peace.

 

Merry Christmas to you dear reader –

you probably know me better

than I know you (is that fair?)

We meet here monthly

to share thoughts, goofy poems,

a sketch and hopefully, inspiration.

Thank you

for letting me reach out

and maybe even, now and then,

touch your heart with mine.

May you be blessed

with health, love and happiness

and may your home be filled

with laughter and peace

now and throughout the new year.
