Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Give Me More Than Wishes
Give me more than wishes on a long extended list.
I know it's time Christmas,
But I'd like a hug and kiss.
All I want is with you near and not just reminisced.
Everyday I prayed for we had and what I missed.
I miss us walking in the cold snow.
And the giving thanks for what we had to share,
I miss the silly things that we would do.
But today a picking of a gift 'is' an effort to endeavor.
