Happiness Is A Warm Cookie

December 4 is National Cookie Day!!  It doesn’t get better than this does it?  I’ll try to do the day a little bite sized bit of heartwarming justice.

Happiness Is A Warm Cookie
by Michael Romani

As the holidays come to shape my days
My mind slips back in a million ways
To the yesterdays spent as a child
And all those things for which I have smiled

Store bought never beats homemade
A lifetime later and the memories still don't fade
Homemade cookies were fundamental to Christmas
A single bit of walnut chocolate chip remains pure bliss

While I know that mistletoe is not to miss
And that nothing can be sweeter than your kiss
Getting down to the Christmas business
It's those homemade cookies what are pure bliss

There is almost nothing better for the soul
My inner child still craves raw cookie dough
There were so many gentle finger slaps in the kitchen
For as many happy nibbles I was always snitching

I was quietly convinced that a balanced diet
Was two or four cookies and more if I could try it
Between blending all the ingredients we'd mix in
In the giant bowls of delight mixed in the kitchen

A mother's love is never quite so unconditional
As when she bakes cookies bite sized and personal
Each of these filled with love from her heart
This then is where the true love of cooking starts
