Another lonely Christmas Eve-
I wonder at the fuss....
That people make about the season,
The bustle and the rush.....
I know the Christmas story-
And believe it to be fact.
But why do people always put-
On such a phony act?
The stores are filled with shoppers
And most the goods are gone..
Theyíre planning get togethers-
But I will eat alone.
Iíve spent a Chrsitmas Eve in jail
But that was long ago-
Iíve nearly frozen one or two-
Out in the cold and snow.
I used to cry myself to sleep-
Now, all my tears are gone....
Iím one of faceless thousands
Who goes through life alone.
So, Christmas? Merry Christmas?
May yours be filled with bliss-
I do not need your pity-
I tell it like it is...
Another day, another year-
A century gone by-
Iíll travel yet another mile-
Ere comes my time to die.

Well, whether you want it or not
here's a great big HUG
wish I could give it to you in person.
And now, kind sir ... that's the last Christmas present I wrapped !
Open it and smile ... just a teeny one
will do.  
Love ~Marge~

Well done, Gunslinger. Hugs to you and ALL those who need them.

Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!
