This Christmas my gift wasn't under the tree
Instead there were gifts there for my gift from me
This is how Christmases always have been

This Christmas my gift to our home was my son
Absent from home fourteen months and then some
Returning a man where a boy once had gone

Returning a man of his own and free will
Returning with honor and my arms to fill


 Kevin

What a wonderful gift to receive, that's worth more then any money can buy. Great poem here, I really enjoyed. Merry Christmas to you, and your family.
