What can I give?
What can I do?
I have so little to share,
For a gift for you.

These thoughts came to me one season.
I had little sources I thought.
When I realized the best gift of all,
Was not one which I had bought.

The baskets of things I had made
From my kitchen and from my heart.
Or the gift book containing coupons
Of which you could tear apart.

Trips to the store when you're homebound
Or a spring cleaning for a day
An offer to take the pet to vet
Or a car tune up along the way

You usually had the necessary things
And that made it hard, so I thought
You said I had the perfect gift for you,
But it wasn't the one that I bought.

Lovely! A good thought too! Sometimes we need to stop being so materialistic!

May I add that you may have forgot
one little gift, companionship?
A simple letter of sweet thought,
does not need to be bought,
but surely the best form of friendship.

This is what it's supposed to be all about in my book!
