A Southwest Christmas
The crowds have cleared
and the planes have all flown.
With Christmas in the air
my job was to get people home.
To be with their loved ones
and to enjoy this day,
my gift was so that others
could love, laugh and play.
So, I felt a little sadness
land in my heart,
for I've never been, from my family,
this far apart.
But today was a new experience
to observe, learn, and grow,
so I adopted each family as mine
Shhhh ... and they didn't even know.
I loved them and laughed with them
and they filled me with joy,
as one child shared his excitement
over his new transformer toy.
So it wasn't quite the Christmas
I hoped for or had in mind,
but my promise was to stay present
so that gratitude would be all one could find.
So, to my three children
I leave you with this gift,
for it was you in my heart
as I offered that last inspired lift.
