The Grantor Of All Gifts

The grantor of all gifts
sits before you everyday
watching as you invest
time and money
as a means to please.

All the bow wrapped gifts
piled beneath your charming
Christmas tree
waiting for the smiling faces
to awaken and gleefully
begin opening their presents.

What about those families
that live day to day,
will they have smiling faces,
will they have presents to open,
or will their day start and end
like all the other days?

The grantor of all gifts
devotes to those in need
the gift of heartfelt love
as these families have much more
then any commercial Christmas can offer.
