A friend suggest I remember the holidays
Our special moments with family and friend
Remembering memories we are thankful for
Appreciating the time with those we spend.
It is hard to forget the commercialization
A time when getting gifts is more important
Can we overlook all the presents and gifts
Focusing on things we need rather than want.
We want to show how much we care at this time
Buying so many things, going deeper into debt
How long are these gifts remembered after all
Two months later, do we remember things we get.
Maybe I focus too much on simpler days passed
When giving of time was something of more value
Making memories that don’t fade and disappear
Because they were made specially of me and you.
