A Holiday Wish

               The stars will be bright and the sky will be clear
               And all whom you love will be happy and near.
               Your home will be warm, and everything right
               With laughter and smiles flowing into the night.

               Your hopes and your wishes will surely come true,
               With all that you've dreamed of just waiting for you.
               All that you’ve given will cause so much cheer,
               And all whom you love will be happy and near.

               The scents of the feast will be filling the air.
               Music will play as you merrily share.
               This is a time that will always be dear,
               With all whom you love being happy and near.

               I wish you the best for this season of lights -
               A time that is precious and full of delights,
               With joy that extends past the month and the year,
               With all whom you love being happy and near.
