The holiday season is different for everyone. But for me, it’s a time to see as many of the people I care about as I can, and give them a little something. I try to keep them in mind throughout the year, and slowly collect just the right object–something that will be useful, or make them smile. And when they open that gift… if I got it right… it gives me a warm glow in my heart.

Happy holidays, whatever you celebrate!

I Want to Give You

A scarf that brings out the color in your eyes

to brighten up your day

A soft fuzzy blanket to keep you warm

and keep the cold winds at bay

Your favorite kind of candy

to sweeten a moment or three

A book you’ve wanted to read

to make you laugh and cry and see

A pin proclaiming your fandom

so everyone knows you’re a proud geek

A fragrant candle in your favorite scents

with light to make the nights less bleak

A gift to say I think of you

from time to time, day to day, throughout the year

A gift to say you’re loved and valued

and I’m glad you’re here

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
