Fidgit Christmas Jitters

I want to write about Christmas cookies, 
Angels that hang on the tree, 
and look at me…
then smile.

I want to write about Mistletoe, 
and first kisses,
red cheeks,
red noses, 
and roses. 

I want to share the feeling that I get, 
when I am waiting for his call, 
from overseas. 
When I can not think fast enough, 
to say all that I want too, 
all that I need too, 
when I can not think at all, 
just to hear his voice. 

I need to write my words down,
before the telephone rings. 
I need to hold them tight to the paper, 
and make them behave…
The only naughty list I want to be on…
is his… 
for all the romantic, 
sexy words, 
I plan to whisper and recite, 
on time…
just right.

I want to celebrate the day, 
in every way…
He is alive somewhere, 
I can never be, 
but his heart…
it is right here, 
home, 
with me.

"I need to write my words down, before the telephone rings. I need to hold them tight to the paper, and make them behave…" - I love how you went from anxious Christmas cookies and feelings to sheer naughtiness! Bravo Ann. Bravo!

That is okay...I will write you a note. Mom's can do that, we have super powers. I will write you a note to say, you have this day off. Says. Me... another mom. Mom's know everything and never get questioned, as long as we look like we got it, no one asks... lol... hugs... Ann
