Old Christmas letters tied up with string.
What wonderful memories they bring.
One from Aunt Rubie written so long ago,
Tugs at my heartstrings as I loved her so.
Over the years, they stay in their box upstairs,
Until one day they are opened again because someone cares.
Events of yesteryear tied up with string.
Never to be forgotten as to their contents I cling.
Loved ones who penned them are gone to their reward;
But with these Christmas letters, their thoughts and memories are restored.
