Something New

Something new is now on offer
Changing perspectives
Addressing directives
A gift of no proffer

Not a possession, we cannot take it home
We cannot order it on layaway
To ship in time for Christmas day
Not something to question, or the latest tome

Wonít cure the common cold
Or make us young again
Not for the vastly vain
Canít be procured or sold

Something new and wonderful
Is coming straight to you
Perhaps itís time you knew
Itís original and bountiful

It isnít progress, or a new century
Not a snow globe from the North Pole
Or a stocking full of black coal
But a bequest of love for you and me

Once we embrace it, and let go my friend
Nothing can erase it, love will transcend

Corrine -
Very, very nice.
Love's bequest is a wonderful thought.
