All I Need

All I Need

I have all I need

Together, all our love 

this night, was for

our children’s dreams.


Their tiny toys 

and bits of sweets,

safely wrapped beneath our tree.


Rewarded by their innocence,

their joy of life,

and their sweet repose.


It warms my heart, 

and it warms yours, too

to give them all of those.


Our family sings

and loves and laughs 

on this Christmas eve.


And with them

in their happy place,

The safety of their dreams.


I see you glow 

as beautifully 

as you were to me.


On this night 

so long ago. 

when I took my knee.


And even though 

many years have passed

I’m as happy as can be.


My love for you 

Has only grown 

With each Christmas tree.


I am a stronger, 

And better man

With you next to me.
