Christmas Turtle

Christmas Turtle
Please please
Remember me
Waiting here at home
Patiently

Christmas Turtle
Seasons change
Watch for small steps
In the snow

Long vacation
Spring to fall
Winter seasons
Far from home

Christmas Turtle
Share your gifts
Children waiting
I should know

I wrote letters
Wished a wish
Created maps
Tried the phone

Long awaited
Hear our call
You will never
Walk alone

Contemplation
Lessons learned
When you travel
Roads unknown

Christmas Turtle
Seasons change
Walk with purpose
In the cold

Travel faster
Use the maps
Read my letters
Find our home

Christmas Turtle
Gone all year
Share the stories
We should know

Please please
Remember me
When you travel far from home
Joyfully

On Christmas morning
The gift of waiting patiently
Brings peace
