The Reason For The Season
Author: Terrie*


this love of mine
I share with you
the reason
for the season

and I spend with you
what I spend from my heart
I'll spend a hug to all I meet
I'll spend a smile to all I greet
I'll spend some time holding a hand
to all in passing

I'll spend a tear
for sadness and in gladness
I'll turn around
I'll spend some time with you
to help you get through

I'll spend each waking moment thanking our KING
for the gift he has given me
of breath and
the love of another life

though i am poor
my riches lie within
I spent but a small fraction of my heart
without going broke
i gained riches from
the beginning to the very end
my reward awaits me beyond lifes door
not just for today
but all those that i lived
trying to perfect my life
by spending and spreading love

I know I spent my love
where it was needed the most
to one and all
least we not forget the reason for the season of giving
I spend my life loving you...

------- Author's Notes -------

may the true meaning of Christmas touch your heart...
love can be spent..but can never be bought...
