A True Christmas Memory
Twas the night before Christmas in the comfy house of Maher.
The decorations were all set, surprises everywhere.
The gifts were all nestled and snug in their places,
ready to be opened by happy, glad faces.
The stockings were hung by the “fireplace” with care,
that Dad had provided with warm, furnace air.
The tree was beautiful, a sight to behold, with
twinkling, music lights and ornaments of old.
And in the playroom, just opposite the tree,
was a homemade train set, for everyone to see.
And Dad and Danny with pain staking care,
had placed houses and people and detail there.
Now, Dad in his sweatshirt and Mom in her slippers,
were eagerly a waiting a house full of “quippers”…
On Tommy, on Jimmy, on Mary and Danny,
On Patty, on DeeDee, on Lisa and Sammy,
On Paul, on Mike, on Jessica and Amy,
On Collin, on Angela, on Rachel and Rickie,
On Joanna, on Lydia, on Caitlyn and Bubbie,
On Laura and Mary and even a doggie!
So, in they all came with packages in store
with presents, with gifts, with goodies galore!
All carefully walked, “watch out for that cat!”
And settled in chairs for a long winter’s chat.
The table was set it couldn’t be beat!
And everyone shouted, “It’s now time to eat!”
The ham was delicious, the potato salad yummy.
There was little space left in anyone’s tummy.
As the dishes were cleaned and the table was cleared,
a choir of voices in unison appeared.
Old favorites were sung, everyone singing,
from “Silent Night” to “Sleigh Bells Ringing.”
The time is now come! The moment is here!
To open the presents from loved ones so dear.
The children were ready and quick as a flash,
had the wrappings off and placed in the trash.
They”ohhed” and they “ahhed” at the presents so new,
hugged Grandpa and Grandma and said their thank you.
The gifts were now opened everyone had a share,
many were handmade with love and great care.
The time is now gone, good nights were all said,
young ones were tired and ready for bed.
And as each left one by one that night a voice could be heard, yet not seen by sight, whispering softly to them all. “Merry Christmas to you and a blessed good night.”

Happy New Year! This is really cute, and thanks for sharing! My Dad wrote up a Night Before Christmas and you reminded me of it...I am going to go find it now!
Love the way you express!
