Christmas Cards

I have a list of folks, all written in a book,
And every year when Christmas comes, I go and take a look
And that is when I realise that these names are a part
Not of the book theyíre written in, but of my very heart
For each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime
And in that meeting theyíve become the rhythm in each rhyme
And while it sounds fantastic for me to make this claim
I really feel that Iím composed of each remembered name
And while you may not be aware of any "special link"
Just meeting you has changed my life, a lot more than you think
For once Iíve met somebody, the years cannot erase
The memory of a pleasant word or of a friendly face
So never think my Christmas cards are just a mere routine
Of names upon a Christmas list forgotten in between
For when I send a Christmas card that is addressed to you
Itís because you are on the list of folks whom Iím indebted to.
ĎCause I am but the total of the many folks Iíve met
And you happen to be one of those I prefer not to forget
And whether I have known you for many years or few
In some way you have had a part of shaping things I do
So every year when Christmas comes, I realise anew,
The best gift life can offer, is meeting folk like you!
And may the Spirit of Christmas that eternally endures
Leave its richest blessings in the hearts of you and yours
