This year I don’t want presents
Things I just don’t use
Christmas is misinterpreted
And very much abused

A gift is a symbol of our Love
Which words can not reveal
But when greed takes over, where love leaves off
The gift loses its appeal

“I Love you” are three simple words
That are easy enough to say
But some find it difficult
So say it in another way

I could continue this poem forever
The topic is quite extensive
But I have to go open my presents now
I hope I get something expensive
