Merry Christmas


I have a list of people
All written in a book -
And every year at Christmas time
I go and take a look.


And that is when I realize
That those names are all a part -
Not of the book they're written in
But of my very heart.


For each name stands for someone
Who has crossed my path some time -
And in that meeting they've become
A treasured friend of mine.


And once you've met some people
The years can not erase -
The memory of a pleasant word
Or of a friendly face.


So when I send an email
That is addressed to you -
It's because you're on that 'Special list'
Of folk that I'm indebted to.


And you are one of several folk
In times past that I've met -
And happen to be one of those
I don't want ever to forget.


And whether I have known you
For many years or few in some way you have had a part
In shaping things I do.


So this the Spirit of Christmas
That forever still endures -
May it leave its richest blessing
In the hearts of you and yours.


From my house to yours wishing you the
Merriest of Christmas and the Happiest New Year.
