Retail therapy…

Lynnette Reeves

As the rain trickles down
There's presents to be wrapped
I'm impatiently waiting
For the gift giving day
Having missed Easter
And birthdays due to the stupid
Covid lockdown
My patience is running out
I love gifting
To see that little smile
And a tear roll down
Their cheek cuz of their
Really makes my heart sing
My happiness is short lived
In a day
And my family I get to see next year
In the heat of the summer
Where muggy weather
Is rampid
But it's worth it!!!
