The Christmas Box
I'm writing down on little cards
The things that I can do
To make each day for Mom and Dad
A "Holiday for Two."
"Make your breakfast," "Shine your shoes,"
"Put your clothes away;"
"Dust the house," "Sweep the floors,"
"Give you hugs each day."
"Do the dinner dishes,"
"Dry them till they shine;"
"Wash the car," "Walk the dog,"
"Make your bed -- and mine!"
I'll put the cards into a box
And wrap it with a bow.
Then place it underneath the tree
To let my parents know
That any time they need my help
All they have to do
Is reach into the Christmas box
That tells them "I Love You."
