As clouds prevent a nightly view

And rain will sting your eye

A burst of light breaks through dark

Stars shoot across the sky

The light is unmistakable

The speed is more than fast

This rarity might not come again

This memory will last

Your luck to catch a prize like this

You’re blessed your timing’s right

Not lost are lessons that it brings

There’s light in every night

Reality tests the strongest man

Our share of pain and strife

But as stars shoot across the sky

She shoots into your life

A boy opens his favorite game

The worlds of war await

A wizard he will choose to be

A dream he will create

A girl is not quite sure of this

How do you play this game

A maiden she will choose for now

But can’t decide a name

The wizard battles for his life

The maiden runs away

The characters soon cross their paths

Not sure of what to say

They plan to battle as one force

They laugh about the game

The wizard changes to a knight

The maiden stays the same

The years sped by, the game did fade

The knight and maiden stood

They’ve left the virtual world they knew

Continue on they would

The knight grew up his dreams grew big

The maiden shared it all

He sheds his armor, just a man

For that woman, he did fall

The man opened his heart to her

Their hopes and dreams await

They’ll always battle as one force

Their life they will create

‘Twas the night before Christmas

And I don’t have a tree

The funny thing is though

It’s just fine with me

I have my three boys

Well, men they are now

I can’t help but marvel how big they have grown

And my one-off advice they’ll allow

And then there’s my daughter

The light in each day

It’s her that I would be nothing without

There’s really not more I can say

As far as my friends

Some are near, some are far

And some friends are new

You know who you are

This year had its hurdles

I tripped on a few

But I aim to move forward

It’s what I should do

On this Eve I’ll be flying

It’s a good night to fly

I might even see that old man in a sleigh

And together we'll jet through the sky

So I’ll close with a thank you

For your time with me here

I’ll try to keep thinking up more of these rhymes

And I’ll be sure to see you next year
