'Twas the night after Christmas

Doug White

'Twas the night after Christmas
Our house was a mess,
But our hearts filled with joy
At the memories of guests.
There were nieces and nephews
And sisters and friends.
We greeted them all
With love without ends.
Even JB came to share in the joy.
And the food and the laughter
Filled our hearts and our house
Right up to the rafters.
There was Bud and Betty Jean,
And Connie and little ones,
And Lisa's gang and Jeanene.
We were filling quick, but still there were more.
Bill and his girls and
Othro and Kristi and Kim
All came bearing gifts of love,
Food and fellowship.
We wish you had been there
To share our delight,
But for now we say
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
And please have a safe and Happy New Year!
