Default ~An inmates night before christmas~

To All of My NJ PTO Family,

I have been trying to send Doc a little something special every day in December until Christmas. Kinda like an advent calendar. I like to write corny poetry, so forgive me if this is not good and also forgive me if I took the liberty to write as an inmate, even though I have never been one. I also thought where I should post this, and of course I thought of my NJ PTO family. This is where it should be! This is my Christmas gift to you all!

AN INMATES NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

BY: JOANNE, AKA INSPIRATION
DEC. 2008



TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
AND THERE ALL ALONE
LAY AN INMATE NOT SLEEPING
BUT DREAMING OF HOME

THE BLANKET WAS THIN
AND HIS CELL WAS SO COLD
THE CHILL IN HIS BONES
WAS TAKING ITS HOLD

THERE WASNíT ANY TINSEL
NO GARLAND OR LIGHTS
THERE WONíT BE ANY PRESENTS
DELIVERED TONIGHT

NO SUGAR PLUMS OR COOKIES
NO TURKEY OR HAM
YOU CANíT EXPECT MUCH
THE MEALS ARE A SHAM!

BUT THE MAN HAD A GLIMMER
A SLIVER OF HOPE
BECAUSE OF THE TREASURE
TIED TO HIS HEART WITH A ROPE

THE ROPE IS MADE OF TEARS
MADE OF STRENGTH AND OF LOVE
WHICH COMES FROM HIS FAMILY
AND FROM HEAVEN ABOVE

KNOWING HEíD MESSED UP
GIVING HIS LOVED ONES MUCH WOE
BUT HOPING AND WISHING
FOR THEM ALL TO KNOW

THE MISTAKES THAT HE MADE
AND THEREíD BEEN QUITE A FEW
HURT HIM THE MOST
THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO

HOW DID HE REACH
THIS LOW POINT OF HIS LIFE
LIVING IN PRISON
AWAY FROM HIS WIFE?

THE MAN LAY IN HIS BUNK
HE THOUGHT AND HE WONDERED
CAN I COME BACK FROM THIS ALL?
WILL THIS BE MY LAST BLUNDER?

BUT SLOWLY A CALM
CAME OVER THE MAN
FOR HE KNEW THAT HIS LOVED ONES
WOULD ALWAYS STAND

RIGHT BY HIS SIDE
THROUGH THICK AND THROUGH THIN
THEY WOULD HELP HIM GET HIM THROUGH
THE MESS HE WAS IN

THEREíS NO NEED TO WORRY
IT MAY TAKE SOME TIME
BUT THIS MAN ONE DAY
WILL BE SO PROUD AND SHINE!

SO STAND BACK AND WATCH
AND YOU WILL FINALLY SEE
WITH YOUR LOVE AND YOUR PATIENCE
THE GREAT MAN IíLL BE

DONíT EVER GIVE UP HOPE
PLEASE DONíT TURN YOUR BACK
STAY WITH ME ALWAYS
AND I WONíT GET OFF TRACK



SO THIS YEAR I CELEBRATE
A CHRISTMAS WITH NO TREE
THERE WONíT BE ANY GLITTER
THERE WONíT BE ANY GLEE

BUT THIS I WILL PROMISE
FROM MY HEAD AND MY HEART
WHEN I COME HOME
I WILL NEVER DEPART

I WILL BRING THE JOY
OF THE SEASON TO YOU
I WILL SHINE BRIGHTER THAN
THE TOYS THAT ARE NEW!

IF SANTA WOULD ONLY
GRANT MY ONE WISH THIS YEAR
THIS MAN WILL BE HUMBLE
AND MAY SHED A TEAR

FOR THE WISH THAT HE WANTS
IS NOT SIMPLE TO GIVE
THIS MAN WISHES TO UNDO
THE HURT THAT HE DID

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

Love, Joanne, A/K/A Inspiration ~

Talking To all My PTO Family

Yes, I give my permission to print it and share it with your loved ones. I posted it here for that exact reason. I hope that I can be an "Inspiration" to maybe just "one" person in this world and offer comfort and hope. Hence my tag name "Inspiration".

Sorry for making you all cry! Not really! tee! hee! A good cry is healthy! Especially if its for the right reasons! And hope is the right reason!

Lots of Love to you all! Joanne
