A Christmas Card Envelope...

A Christmas Card Envelope...

It doesn't seem like much,
Just a piece of paper in the mail,
A shroud over the real message we hang on the mirror,
Something cut open and tossed as soon as we know who,
But do we ever look at the little stickers and drawings?

Half the work in a few pen strokes,
Ninety cards that carry a simple message,
"Merry Christmas, Happy New Year.
We're thinking of you for just these moments,
In this place in time - because you're special to us.
Because no matter the words written,
You have a little piece of our hearts with you,
One of the ones full of love."


So I draw my little Christmas card envelope Santas,
An we send off our pieces of heart,
And I wonder if I'll be able to count them all,
On my last Christmas,
And I wonder if I'll ever remember to wonder,
Do they miss their colorful wrappers,
And did I see all the little details,
All those years I was wishing for snowflakes and candleshine?

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year.
We're thinking of you for just these moments,
In this place in time - because you're special to us.
Because no matter the words written,
You have a little piece of our hearts with you,
One of the ones full of love.
