Gifts Were Piled All Around My Feet
Free to Share
Author requests article critique
I imagined I was in a house so grand it stood in the center of a green land, I was surprised that the mailbox held my name, for I'd never been there, was this some kind of game?
I opened the door to a vast entryway where small children seemed to be at play, but when they saw me, they all got in a line, each holding a present they said was mine.
Each gift was so pretty, all wrapped up and with a bow, what it held, I certainly didn't know. but soon gifts were piled all around my feet, and the children all departed with smiles so sweet.
I sat down and opened the first box where it lay, it was full of joy and had come to stay.
The next lovely box held hope inside and now in my house it would abide.
The next held forgiveness and grace, and they seemed to fill up all the space,
How could I be receiving all this? I wondered, thinking something was surely amiss.
The last box to open was the smallest one, then the opening would be done;
when I looked inside, it held my dreams come true, for inside I saw a picture of you!
All of these blessings were for me to share, Happiness lay in giving away what was there, and the love that returned was for all time, for in giving I received so much more that was mine.
I gave you my heart, you gave me yours too, and each day is a treasure discovered anew, all that we have is a gift from above, and each day we fall deeper in love.
The mailbox by that imaginary house is brand new, there is not just one name, now there are two, and now all the gifts that are opened with care,
are ones that we both can give away and to share.
I will spend every day thanking my God above, for the riches He's sent, for this wondrous love, I'll gather them up and give them to you, for with you I am living my dream come true.
