About the Poem
Holidays can be a bitter sweet time especially if we are not with the one we love. Yet even if the miles separate us, memories can still keep us close and the best gift we can give anyone is the gift of ourselves.

Merry Christmas, Sweetheart!

Merry Christmas, Sweetheart
with you is where I want to be
Yet it seems our lives are complicated
for I am the one not free,
Yet the very best present
is the gift of one's self
I have given you a part of me
that has never belonged to anyone else.
So we can't be together this Christmas
yet our souls are not apart
for I have given you the best part of me
I have given you my heart.
