Wrapped In Presents.

By Rodney Alan Brubaker


So now is the time of giving.

And in turn we shall receive.

Yet it's not the present that we want

Here desire does deceive.

With twist of truth, by want or need.

We're led to misbelieve.

What we truly wish.

We always get.

Though amid the boxes, lost.

Not pretty bows,

Nor fancy things,

We judge upon the cost.


For what we want comes with the gift.

As sure as God above.

To know once more they think of you.

That you're remembered,

And are loved..
