Each year, I send out a poem, written on pretty paper instead of a greeting card. This is my poem for this year.

As years go, this was not the best
Our love and patience put to the test
Horror filled our hearts with pain
Will we ever feel secure again?

How can we smile and be of good cheer
After this, a sad and tragic year?
And yet we, with bowed head stand
Reach out to find a brotherís hand

A small thing surely to start anew
One heart sends love from me to you
Your heart and mine send love more
We find the key that unlocks hateís door

Brotherhood of man will be
The cure for our nationís tragedy
Passion for life; love of our land
And reaching out with a helping hand.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah

Lovely, lovely words here. I do like this very much. You have expressed exactly what so many feel, and expressed it beautifully.

A wonderful holiday gift of words you send.
This year is very different from what most have known. Much tragedy has rocked our nation, but as you have so richly expressed, we will reach out to each other... hand in hand.

Hugs,
Deb

First, I love the thought of sending your talents instead of a boughten card. Secondly, your poem is so touching and timely, I'm sure it'll be a treasured keepsake, and lastly, your words flow so very nicely, it's a pleasure to reread.  Thanks for sharing with us.

I loved your essay in poetry form. Sums up the year 2001 very accurately and should warm hearts as it's read. Cheryl
