This Christmas

Rating: 5.0
Just once before I die I would
so love to see a lot of smiling faces,

Mind you, there is no pressing need
for outright reverence or admiration.
I am completely able to interpret all
nuances of your now familiar lines
crows' feet and ordinary wrinkles are,
what I have stared into, each working day.

H, is the 'Salt and Pepper' suit just for delivering the season's greetings? If so, give my condiments to your tailor. Danny ; ¬)

Sadness and humour well married together, here. Love the finish: '...wrapped like a Christmas gift from God / inside my salt and pepper London-tailored suit' - colourful allusions.
