A Holiday Poem


By Jeffrey C. Nickerson, Estate Planning Attorney

‘Tis the season for giving and across the land, families celebrate among festive garland;

Such attention is paid to the dinner menu, it includes the favorite dish of your youngest nephew;

The songs, joy and laughter will soon ensue, creating a memory that lasts decades for you;

But just when you thought the last doorbell had rung, more people come over to join in the fun;

Now Grandpa and Grandma, Now old Uncle Sam; Here’s a favorite cousin from East Birmingham;

Now with a hug, or a peck on the cheek, you show care and affection to the boisterous and the meek;

In a blink of an eye, more such gifts can be given, to show love and protection, with your specific intention;

Just a bit of your time, so there’s no need to panic, about who receives what from the stacks in the attic;

Think ahead to the time you’ll need help and assistance, and pick those who you trust for their care and their patience;

Even when you are gone and can’t twitter or post, you’ll give comfort and ease when they all need it most;

They will hear you exclaim, though you are out of sight, “Happiness to you all, and with your brother don’t fight!”
