If only I could wrap the gifts
I should most like you to see,
They would sparkle like the rest ...
Beneath the annual Christmas tree.
But, I can't wrap these gifts to you.
They can't wear paper and a bow.
For, they come straight from my heart
And only love can make them glow.
I give you open admiration.
I give you respect and pride.
I give you support and sharing,
and joy at being by your side.
I give you warmth and tenderness.
I give you all good wishes, too.
I give you care and gentleness,
Straight from me to you.
Please accept these loving thoughts.
Put them where your heart can see.
For, when you place them there, my love,
You'll know they came from me.
