Lessons from “It’s a Wonderful Life”
Our sons had to be convinced
Watching black and white movies
This old cinematic tale and its characters
Caught them up right away
From steadfast George to evil Mr. Potter
They all resonate in our hearts at Christmas.
What surprised me most
Was their response to Donna Reed's Mary
Where can we find one like her?
Her loyalty and love for George
Even when he’s lost in the storms of life
About to jump when he's forgotten how life could have been
So different, so empty, so unforgiving
I want to be like her for you
When things go sour
I won't forget what brought us together
In the first place
When you lassoed the moon for me;
I'm warmth in the middle-of-the-dark night
When you need shelter.
I'm ZuZu's petals in your pocket
To remind you where you belong
When you are trying to find your way back home.
