Congratulations to JODER, winner of Wendy's giveaway!
This is me, I was about three
I remember the time, I remember the place
I don’t remember why the disgusted look on my face
Was it his beard, the lights
The camera, a bad night?
Before I finally agreed to sit with him on his chair?
I remember my mom, my hand she held tight
And whispered to me, ‘He’s a nice man, it’s all right.’
I finally gave in, on his knee I did sit
Clutching tightly to balloons, I held in my mitt
I was unsure what I wanted, unsure what to say
Unsure what would be under the tree Christmas Day.
A time simpler, quieter, more genuine - It’s been awhile
Since that lovely time and that lovely place
That little bemused look on my face
Yet it holds the best wishes, from then until today
That all the finest blessings await you this Christmas Day.
