A Dancer’s Spring Tea

         TU TU MUCH

 

I went to a dancer’s Spring Tea

Some tutus I wanted to see

They were all overweight

From the cookies they ate

So they each had on a three three

                 PAT

 

You were born when I was ten

And I thought, “She’s just for me”

No one could tell me otherwise

I knew you had to be

 

You were my little living doll

And I loved you very much

It gave us lasting closeness, Pat

Through time’s loving touch

 

We aren’t children any more

But as the years slipped by

The special bond we shared back then

Became a lasting tie

 

Mom’s last request, ”Look after Pat”

I felt compelled to do

Not because you needed me

For I also needed you

 

The years are but reminders

Through memory’s gentle kiss

That the greatest gift Mom gave to me

Is my one in a million Sis

 

              I LOVE YOU

  GOD BLESS EVERYONE

 

Hang the bells and sprigs of holly

Trim the tree with lights and snow

Pin the stockings on the mantle

Hang a bit of mistletoe

 

Wrap some gifts in colored tissue

Tie them well with cords of red

Place a candle in the window

Tuck the children into bed

 

Bake some cookies shaped like Santa

Frost them all in red and white

Make some pies for the dinner

Keep the hearth fires burning bright

 

Finish all the preparations

Making sure all is done

Bow your head and give HIM thanks . . .

MAY GOD BLESS EVERYONE
