Box after box, young Sally opened
Was empty, each seal already broken
Crumpled wrapping paper littered the floor
As Sally looked at her parents asking for more
“All the boxes are empty. I got nothing at all!”
They watched their daughter’s smile fade and fall
“Oh, dear Sally, please don’t be sad.
This isn’t the worst thing. In fact, let’s be glad.
We’re here together and blessed with health!
Having many things does not equal wealth.
You see, we’re the wealthiest family celebrating today
Because no one can rob our Christmas spirit away!”
With a hug and a kiss, Sally immediately knew
Her parent’s words were the truest of true
