THE GIFT by Gary R. Ferris
As I see the day approaching,
When you began your life;
I wonder what to give you,
And my soul begins to strife.
For money, I donâ€™t have any,
And gifts, they donâ€™t last long;
So what can I offer you,
Thatâ€™s meaningful and strong.
The first thing that I thought of,
Was to buy you something cheap;
But then you would curse me,
And think I was a creep.
For money, clothes, and jewelry,
These things they seem so small;
So quickly you would lose them,
And then have nothing at all.
So maybe this is silly,
To give you on this night;
But giving away a part of me,
Just makes me feel so right.
So this year I will give to you,
The words that fill my soul;
I hope that they will bless you,
And may your life be whole.
