This Perfect Christmas Gift

It’s been a decade, even more,
Since I had one long rest,
When I could happily relax
Forgetting that I’m stressed.

I want a cruise, an awesome cruise
On a luxury ship
Down South America’s warm coast
And then around its tip!

In fact, I’d travel all the world
While taking my sweet time,
But such a thing I’d need to do
On someone else’s dime!!

This perfect Christmas gift, however,
I may never get. . . 
I’ll keep on dreaming of it, though,
Because I’m not dead yet!

For The Perfect Christmas Gift Contest of Deb Wilson

    I say set a date to go and book a cruise for a week, life is so short. Would be great to go as a group, maybe get a deal, good way for all us poets to possibly meet? Lovely dream and write! Hugs

    I have the solution. Why not catch a ride on Santa's sleigh. All you need take is some sugar for the reindeer and a bottle of whiskey for Santa. He'll take you, joyfully, around the world. Hope you get your fondest desire and soon. LOve, daver

    Now that sounds fantastic! Can I add to it? The soup poets all chip in, charter a ship and cruise off into the sunset writing glorious poetry!

    Andrea I think we would all like this gift. I will buy a lottery ticket ,about the only way for me to enjoy a wish like this. A great wish poem.Anne

    That would be a pretty good Christmas gift I must agree. I hope you get it, even if it's not for Christmas. I'm sure the rest would be appreciated at any time. Good work, and good luck with the contest, although you really don't need luck.

    This is a perfect poem about what would be your perfect gift! I know what you mean, it would be nice, but someone else is going to have to pay for it...I can't afford it either my friend! This is a tremendous write Andrea, it flowed extremely well and you drew me into the piece with ease! Great Work!!
