A Little Trouble Making A list.

I was sitting today thinking about what I wanted for Christmas,
I truly can say I want for nothing,
That is a good feeling and how truly blessed I am,
My husband said well surely you must want something,
I paused and thought well okay,
I said to him I want more sunny days than overcast ones,
Even in the cold when the sun shines it is so beautiful,
so yes that would be what I want.
That is very important to someone with a sleep disorder,
Okay he said I can't help you with that one.
What do you need?
I said I don't need anything.
I said I have all my arts and crafts to keep me busy,
my computer to play on,
I have my pets,
my friends, my family, my husband.
I said if there are things throughout the year I need
you go out and get them.
He said well yes but they are just everyday things.
I said you know the only thing I need sometimes
is to still cry about my Dad, and you hold my hand
and we remember. So If I needed anything 
I would need to tell you how I cherish our lives.
He said Okay you must wish for something,
I said yes I wish for good health for you and I,
I wish forgiveness to those who quarrel,
I wish for compassion for the needy,
I wish for warmth for the homeless,
I wish for food for the hungry,
I wish for hope and faith restored,
I said yes I wish to be kinder
and more loving to those I
know and don't know.
He said you are really not being very helpful for Christmas ideas,
I said Why don't you write me a poem,
they are so special to me.
I said even when you write about hockey,
and our life being a sport.
I said yes that is what I would like.
He smiled and we were both happy.
I smiled inwardly knowing that he would not write this poem
until the 24th of December,
he writes like he Christmas shops.
at the very last moment.
I know it will be the 
Very Best Christmas!
