Christmas Present

This Christmas, I give you…

Presence

Lots of Presence

No, it’s not a typo, I typed it twice. Presence. Now thrice.

Seeing as we can only be Here
In the Now
No matter where we are
I choose to give you
All my attention
Whenever I’m in Your Presence

And I hope you will return the favour

It’s easy enough to do
Just put away your Technology
Turn off all Notifications
Put it on Silent, or Vibrate
Let the Call Waiting wait
Let us Appreciate
And Acknowledge
The company we’re in
And engage in the lost art
Of Conversation
Let us be fully Here and Now
Let us be Present

We don’t need presents
Just Presence
