The Greatest Gift

The Christmas rush
from store to store
With crowds and sales
bigger than before

As consumers
we do as we’re told
Purchase a stone, a keepsake,
a memory to hold

A token filled
with thought and emotion
that conveys the depths
of our love and devotion

I finally found
the answer this year
And it’s as simple
as just having you near

Because the greatest gift
you can receive
Is time with a loved one
And the promise
They will never leave
