The Night Before

T’was the night before

The night before

And once again

I was at the door

Another box

Another gift

Another reason

For spirits to lift

I set it down

And walked around

And saw that all

Were safe and sound

I sat and thought

Of all we’d bought

But my heart knew

I’d all I’d sought

From years before

When I wanted more

But now all I want

Are those I adore

The simple things

The season brings

Fill my heart

And my spirit sings

A quiet night

A gentle light

A hand to hold

Makes it all right

No need for more

Presents on the floor

All I want

Are those I adore

Merry Christmas
