The Greatest Gift - Poem by Matthew Densley

I don't need a gift this year
Already have what I hold dear
You gave me all I need to live
There's nothing else you need to give

Don't need to get me a book or toy
There is no gadget to bring me joy
Fancy things won’t give me pleasure
Love's the only thing I treasure

The only present I could desire
The greatest gift I could acquire
More sacred than the stars above
Is to have you and have your love

You're all I want, I need you so
Wrapped in paper with a bow
Nestled under my Christmas tree
Holding a tag addressed to me
