Bring back the Joy of Loving,
Life can quickly take its leave.
Respond to every little heart,
Tugging at your sleeve.
There are no hugs in texting,
Emails have no touch.
I want to actually hear you say,
“I love you very much.”
A card would show you thought of me,
On a very busy day.
I'll always keep it in a box,
To never throw away.
Sometimes folks drop off gifts,
Then hurry out the door,
Not knowing that a little time,
Would have meant oh so much more.
This Christmas Day we should turn off,
Every entertaining device.
Celebrate each other,
And the Birth of Jesus Christ.
