My Night Before Christmas - A Poem

Writing poetry is an alternative form of self-expression. Every poem is a learning experience - a creative process to enrich my life.

The night before Christmas and the cupboards are bare.

My Night Before Christmas

It's the night before Christmas

The cupboards are bare


I don't have a dollar

But shucks, I don't care


With a family that loves me

That's all I need


And friends that stay loyal

Ah, yes, indeed


I've never felt better

I'm blessed with good health


I count all my blessings

And add up my wealth


My world's full of beauty

I love everyday


Nature's paintings surround me

And show me the way


May whatever I do

As I travel this road


Leave an imprint of love

And a brave story told


Now my cupboards are full

With no room to spare


With music, a dog

And a family so rare


Have a wonderful Christmas

Have a wonderful year


With Angels beside me

I will see you next year


My precious Clancey watches over me from doggy heaven.
