Christmas This Year

Forget to count the presents under the tree
Look beyond the gifts and tinsel
they will be tucked away or forgotten

Forget the gnarly parking lots 
Soon everyone will go home
Failing at finding the perfect gift

Forget to buy that little black dress
that is just 1 size too small
and will only be worn once

Forget to drink at all the parties
and then not remember how you got home
or how you acted in front of your boss

Forget how little money you have this year
and using credit til you exceed your limit
buying high price items till you are broke

Don't forget the homeless that will receive no gifts
no thought of tinsel only hunger

Don't forget the ones that have no cars. They have no worries of full
parking lots  They would just like to have bus fare

Don't forget the ones that don't need or want a little black dress.
 There are no parties for them to attend 
They would prefer a second hand jacket to stay warm

Don't forget the ones who have no money.
 No cash or credit cards to buy the things they need. 
Their only wish is a warm blanket to sleep with on cold winter night

Don't forget the meaning of Christmas. Giving  to others less fortunate
sharing and loving each other.

Don't forget
