The Perfectly Wrapped Gift

The Perfectly Wrapped Gift

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

The Perfectly Wrapped Gift


Paper, ribbons and bows,

All on the floor in no rhyme or pose.

Scattered about, yet used to beautifully tie

Together in colors bright.


Packaged just so,

And soon to be known.

Hoping to give

The perfectly wrapped gift.


For it’s all in the preparation,

(Or so they say,) in the decoration.

Glitter for the eyes

While the gift is disguised.


Securely placed beneath
The lighted tree,

Ready to give spirits a lift--

The perfectly wrapped gift.


When time comes,

All the wrapping will be undone

And all will be revealed

With such cheer.


One day the Savior graced a tree
To fulfill a promised eternity…

All because a swaddled baby lived--

The perfectly wrapped gift.

Thanks for reading.
A wonderful poem shared dear Melinda.
One day the Savior graced a tree
"To fulfill a promised eternity…
All because a swaddled baby lived--
The perfectly wrapped gift."

You've captured the true meaning of Christmas with such a graceful touch of holy magic.
Your work is a gift in itself, beautiful...
Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

swaddled in a manger,the stars lights his bed,
the angels gather around his head,
