Sentimental moments are well planned,
Entering the heart on schedule.
Although for some the feeling may seem canned,
Some find resonance in ritual.
On certain days there is an expectation,
Nostalgic in advance, of happiness,
Stirred by rich, repetitive sensation,
Graced by care, italicized by stress.
Render, then, your holidays with such
Emotion as befits the time and place,
Evoking what will never be too much
To feel within the beauty you embrace.
In sentimental moments there's a sense
Not merely of the will but of the whence,
Good feeling that is resident within,
Summoned up to sing what long has been.
