It's The Day After Christmas - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It's the day after Christmas,
And I'm feeling rather good.
I've expressed my love for those...
Who understood I did the best I could!

This past year I was there,
For anyone with a need for a friend
Sometimes I comforted with empathy,
Hoping what I shared did not offend.

But every challenge I faced...
I didn't hesitate to solve.
I was there willing to give.
There I was..involved!

And today I say a prayer...
Thanking God for the life I have!
Remembering it didn't have to turn out this way,
To awaken feeling blessed, grateful and glad!

It's the day after Christmas,
And I've been gifted with a sense of love!
It didn't come packaged to unwrap at all...
It came as something special from above!

Comfortable and tailor made.
'Thanks! '
