Greatest Gifts

It's not all about presents
Laying under the tree.
Trinkets made of gold
Mean nothing to me.

It's not all about money.
What joy can it bring?
It's being wanted and loved,
Not material things.

Possessions can't hug you
Or give you a kiss.
Christmas with loved ones
Is what I miss.

Christmas presents are just temporary.
Their joy is short lived.
Only love and loved ones
Are the greatest of gifts.

I really loved this poem. What I love about this poem is its simplicity of what a true gift from the heart is all about. It’s just like Jesus was the gift of love to all the world from God, not gold, not bought but given out of love, a gift that lasts eternally. I just love this Christmas poem. It says it all.
