Chirstmas Eve

T’was the night before Christmas and down in my shop
I was tired from building and ready to flop.
The wings were hung from the rafters with care
Oh gosh, their building was really a bear!

My wife lay snoozing upstairs in the bed,
visions of jewelry danced in her head.
My children too were asleep in the night,
hoping for presents by dawns early light.

My eyes kept closing as the fluorescents glowed
and balsa dust settled on top of my nose.
Just one more part and I’ll call it an eve,
trying to keep glue from my face and my sleeve.

Climbing the stairs and headed to bed,
wanting to sleep for the man in the sled.
Soon at my house with presents galore,
spread like gems all over my floor.

I can’t complain on this quiet Chirstmas eve,
blessed with love, health and a great family.
There are all the gifts that a man could desire,
except for a plane or two if he’s an RC flyer.

Oh and maybe a radio, servos and more fuel tanks,
epoxy, white glue, for these I give thanks.
The list goes on but I shall not,
there comes a time when one should stop.
Only to say as I turn out the light

MERRY CHIRSTMAS to all,
and to all a good night.

A Different Christmas Poem

The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,
I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.

My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,
My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.

Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,
Transforming the yard to a winter delight.

The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,
Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve.

My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep,
Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep.

In perfect contentment, or so it would seem,
So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.

The sound wasn't loud, and it wasn't too near,
But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear

Perhaps just a cough, I didn't quite know,
Then the sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow.

My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear,
And I crept to the door just to see who was near.

Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night,
A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight.

A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old,
Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold.

Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled,
Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.

"What are you doing?" I asked without fear,
"Come in this moment, it's freezing out here!

Put down your pack, brush the snow from your sleeve,
You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!"

For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift,
Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts..

To the window that danced with a warm fire's light
Then he sighed and he said "Its really all right,

I'm out here by choice. I'm here every night.
So that your family can sleep without fright.

It's my duty to stand at the front of the line,
That separates you from the darkest of times.

No one had to ask or beg or implore me,
I'm proud to stand here like my fathers before me.

My Gramps died at 'Pearl on a day in December,"
Then he sighed, "That's a Christmas 'Gram always remembers"

My dad stood his watch in the jungles of 'Nam',
And now it is my turn and so, here I am.

I've not seen my own son in more than a while,
But my wife sends me pictures, he's sure got her smile.

Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag,
The red, white, and blue... an American flag.

I can live through the cold and the being alone,
Away from my family, my house and my home.

I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet,
I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat.

I can carry the weight of killing another,
Or lay down my life with my sister and brother..

Who stand at the front against any and all,
To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall.

"So go back inside," he said, "harbor no fright,
Your family is waiting and I'll be all right."

"But isn't there something I can do, at the least,
"Give you money," I asked, "or prepare you a feast?

It seems all too little for all that you've done,
For being away from your wife and your son."

Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret,
"Just tell us you love us, and never forget.

To fight for our rights back at home while we're gone,
To stand your own watch, no matter how long.

For when we come home, either standing or dead,
To know you remember we fought and we bled.

Is payment enough, and with that we will trust,
That we mattered to you as you mattered to us."

my daughter was going nowhere with her life and was in a punk stage, She told her mom to [email protected] off. I heard that and grabbed her and threw her in the car. We drove to the juvenile home and I told her either get rid of all that punk crap, apologise to you mom (who saved her life with cpr when she had a siezure) and straingten out or you live here. She said yes sir. Went home got rid of all the crap apologised and we took her to get decent clothes
She was 14 then and now i couldnt be prouder. Todays parents wouldnt do that either out of fear or not caring!
