Why is it only once a year
Around this very time,
It seems the worlds attitudes
Perk up from all the grime?

The cheerfulness we're seeing
And the spirit of just giving
Why can't we do this all year
In our everyday life living?

I'm thankful that it comes to us
If even once a year
If it makes us stop and think
Of those we hold so near

Don't ya think the spirit of
This Christmas giving cheer
Should be with everyone of us
All throughout the year?

If we could take the season
And make it last a whole year long
Instead of spending money
But use love, we can't go wrong!

Excellent thoughts, dove. Too bad it can't be that way.

Thanks RSEvans...would be wonderful if we tried.

Bal' who says it can't? In all reality I know it won't be in this lifetime. Just wish people would take time to see what's really important. It isn't the cost of the gifts, but the gifts of love that mean the most. We don't need to wait for Christmas to give those.

Ohme, Thank you so very much!

Every year at Christmas time
Eveyone's high on song
And I think your very thoughts, white dove
Why not, then, all year long

lovely poem

I do agree that our Christmas cheer should be all throughout the year! Great poem!

Well Devine, it's a heck of a philosophy to have! I'm glad you have it and will keep it!
Thank you for your kind words Devine, but I don't think this would make it as a card! But thank you!

Hoot and Pepper I thank you very much! I really, truly believe that we should do this all year round. Not the gifts of cost but the gifts of giving from ourselves by helping others!
