A Christmas Wish - Poem by David Keig

This Christmas
No greater gift
Could come to me
Than just
For once
For once
To see
My own children
Just being happy.

    I can see what your saying... Elizabeth`s storry is amazing... on sunday I got a brand new Honda from earning $9023 this last four weeks and even more than 10-k this past month. with-out any doubt it's the most financially rewarding I've ever had. I started this 8-months ago and pretty much straight away was bringing home over $71... per-hr. I use this great link........[[www.geosalary.com (Report) Reply

    A Christmas Wish
    Well expressed wish of every good father. I especially like how lacking you are in selfishness at a time of year when so many are too selfish. Well written succinct poem worthy of Poem Of The Day. Congratulations!
