The Unexpected Gift


Amidst all of the hustle and bustle

The Christmas Season brings

We oft forget

The simplest joys

A smile and a hug can bring


No mistletoe required

Or a black tie

But perhaps a cup of cocoa

A good friend

Sitting beside a warm fire


Gifts will be bought

Or made with love

Wrapped all pretty

With ribbons

And bows


But let us not forget

That the most unexpected gift

Is us, yet the most valued

The giving of ourselves

To those we love
