Hello Charlotte. I hope this helps and that you and your son have an enjoyable Christmastogether with his family.
Thank you for inviting me
to spend Christmas with you
every day is a blessing
at the age of ninety-two.
I'm sure I've made mistakes
but my love always was strong
so I pray I'll be forgiven
if you feel I've done you wrong.
For family is so important
and I hold you in my heart
hoping to spend time together
instead of another year apart.

Sue, I think your poem hits the nail on the head. The one I wrote just bubbled out so I'll go ahead and post it...it's different but it may be usable for someone else too:
Of all the things I’ve done in life
The ones I most regret
Are things that may have hurt someone
I love but then forget
I realize as the years go on
I want to make amends
To clear the air and thus return
To happiness again
I hope that you’ll forgive me now
And let me start anew
Not just for the holidays
But into the new year too!
