Cup of Love

It is a family tradition 
Passed from year to year
That we spend together 
And celebrate with cheer

As the first snowflakes fall
We hear mama’s voice call
"It’s time for hot cocoa;
Come one and come all"

She asks nothing in return
Just quality time to share
Making each cup special
To show how much she cares

Now anxiously we wait
When leaves begin to fall
That cup of love to come
With winters first snowfall

Sweet write here about a wonderful family tradition! Like this one, Lena. Just one little thing though ... 2nd stanza, 2nd line you want to change it to "hear" instead of here ... you "hear Mama's voice" ... smile ... Now, its perfection ...
