I have a list of folks I know all written in a book,
And every year at Christmas time I go and take a look.
And that is when I realize that these names are of a part,
Not of the book in which they’re written, but of my very heart.

Each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime,
And in that meeting they’ve become the rhythm of the rhyme.
And while it sounds fantastic of me to make this claim,
I really feel that I’m composed of each remembered name.

And while you may not be aware of any special link,
Just meeting you has shaped my life more than you can think.
For once you’ve met somebody, those years they can’t erase,
The memories of a pleasant word or of a friendly face.

So never think that my Christmas greeting is just a mere routine,
Of names upon a Christmas list forgotten in between.
For when I send a Christmas greeting that is addressed to you,
It’s because you’re on that list of folks whom I am indebted to.

For I’m but a total of the many ones I’ve met,
And you happen to be one of those I prefer not to forget.
And whether I’ve known you for many years or few,
In some way you had a part in shaping things I do.

So every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew,
The biggest gift that life can give is meeting someone like you.
And may the spirit of Christmas that forever and ever endures,
Leave its richest blessings in the heart of you and yours.

    • Thank you, Cathleen. It is somewhat surprising that the excellent poem remains somewhat obscure. Perhaps its length could be hindering it from being used more widely. Even its origin cannot be determined precisely. Have you even encountered it elsewhere?

      Let’s hope that 2018 will exceed our expectations amicably, if not wildly. 🙂


  10. Sorry I am just now reading my Christmas mail but am delighted I didn’t miss it. It certainly is a special greeting and I send my gratitude for such a sweet gift! Please accept my reply and best wishes for another year of joy to many and thanks to all for remembering that one who is a giver will be amazed to learn such gifts come back again to bless again on another day. Merry Christmas SoundEagle!

    • Thank you, wise migarium! May 2018 also bring you better insights and effective ways to rescue humanity from its endless follies and foibles! ✨🌌🌟🌠✨☄️

      How long is one ‘year’ on your planet? How many such ‘years’ have you lived through?

      Even more importantly, SoundEagle🦅 would like to find out from you whether the past and future exist or whether only the present exists, and also how often, if at all, you live in the moment and ponder the meaning of life, mortality, the purpose of existence, and the spacetime continuum, by visiting and replying at the very special post entitled 🦅 SoundEagle in Best Moment Award from Moment Matters 🔖🏆.

      • Thank you for your kind words, my earthling friend! It has been very busy last months, that’s why I can reply to you right now. I will more write in later days, I hope you are fine, and your days in 2018 are continuing in good!

    2. Happy belated new year to you.
    3. You liked a comment I made on Sound Eagle’s blog. I wanted to come introduce myself. I blog at MostlyBlogging.com. Maybe you can check out my blog if you need any blogging tips. That’s what I write about. I also have blog parties.

    • Hello Janice

      Belated New Year greetings and best wishes to you also. I have just visited your blog, which seems to be a mine of useful information. At present I do not blog myself, but rather make occasional contributions to Soundeagle’s site. Three more of our collaborative efforts are due to be posted in the fairly near future.

      Warmest regards
