Saginaw, Tx, USA
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.
