Of all the Gifts...
Of all the Gifts...

Of All the Gifts....



♥ A Christmas song to sing along to someone you love...

Merry Christmas Hubbers! ♥


Of all the gifts that Santa can bring

There’s only one that’ll make my heart sing

Of all the stuff that make Sleigh Bells ring

There’s only one thing, there’s only one thing



Of all the gifts that sit under my tree

There’s something else that really matters to me

Of all the shiny stuff wrapped and ready

There’s only one that will make me merry



It’s your love, it’s your love

It’s the gift of you being all mine

It’s your love, it’s your love

It’s the feeling that makes my star shine



Of all the gifts that Santa can bring

There’s only one that’ll make my heart sing

Of all the stuff that make Sleigh Bells ring

There’s only one thing, there’s only one thing



It’s your love, it’s your love

The touch of your hand on my arm

It’s your love, it’s your love

The embrace that makes me feel warm



Of all the gifts that sit under my tree

There’s something else that really matters to me

Of all the shiny stuff wrapped and ready

There’s only one that will make me merry



It’s your love, it’s your love

Knowing that you’ll always care

It’s your love, it’s your love

It puts so much joy in my air


Of all the gifts that Santa can bring

There’s only one that’ll make my heart sing

Of all the stuff that make Sleigh Bells ring

There’s only one thing, there’s only one thing



Please tell Santa, give my chimney a skip

You with me is really all that I want

Come kiss me hard till I can't feel my lips

Hold me close and I’ll whisper a chant:




It’s your love, it’s your love

It’s the gift of you being all mine

It’s your love, it’s your love

It’s the feeling that makes my star shine...

It’s the feeling that makes my star shine...

It’s the feeling that makes my star shine...

      That's so nice to hear Audrey. I'd love to hear your arrangement. Perhaps a collaboration is in order! Thank you.

      I not only heard the music for this poetry of yours, I experimented on the piano for about a 30 minute period and have to say I came up with a melody, arrangement and the chord progressions. Being a professional songwriter and singer, this brought me great joy. You have a gift as a lyricist Docmo. Voted up and more!

      This was a Christmas present. and I meant it when I said

      'Please tell Santa, give my chimney a skip

      You with me is really all that I want' sadly the receiver doesn't always appreciate these scribblings- but that's another story.

      Dear Docmo, I couldn't imagine a better gift than receiving those beautiful words from someone I loved. How perfect and beautiful when the two come together...kind of a reverse O'Henry story...win-win. This poem captures the hope, love and magic of Christmas creating one beautiful package.

      Thanks Docmo-have fun 'teasing' that melody. Merry Christmas back to you. Enjoy your week.

      Yes- I do have some musical buddies and I also did try to learn to 'read' music last year. I can do some notes on a keyboard/ piano. I better tease out a tune with someone a bit more erudite in these matters than a novice like me. Merry Christmas to you Denise, nice to see your positive comments!

      Smiles back to you. Now, about your tune...Get one of your musician buddies (see how I assume things, LOL) to help you tease it out on a keyboard. Anyone in the music biz will know how to write it in music language. I used to write songs (played guitar) but I'm far away from you.

      (re: snow--we got a dusting but it closed the schools down for two days. ) Merry Christmas to you and good luck with your melody.

      Thanks Denise, I've got a tune in my head - dunno how to 'write it' as it doesn't mirror any other tunes I know- will have to think of a familiar song or a tune that is closest! Thanks for your kind comments - there is 12 inches of snow outside and you've warmed me with your feedback!

      Is this the Christmas poem that you referred to in the forum? If so, my question back to you is -- what is the melody that plays in your head when you say these words? It is a lovely poem that has a nice beat...I'm sure you have an idea of what you would imagine it being if set to music. (?) Beautiful.
