Christmas Cheer


This holiday season brings joy to hearts.
With the carolling of songs...
Delighting an open giveness that starts,
With a Christmas cheer that lures
Twinkling lights and tasteful sweet tarts
Endeared to endure.

This holiday season bestows reasons to live,
To forgive and forget with gifts we give.
Making Christmas what it should be...
Christmas remembered for what it is,
A time on Earth when a special child appeared!

Pine trees trimmed.
Topped with stars and angel wings.
Symbols enhanced to the dancing eyes,
Of children with hopes and dreams...
Of sleigh rides
Of reindeer
On rooftops with bells.
And a red suited Santa Claus,
Dropping toys made by elves.

This holiday season,
As we please each teasing whim,
Let us wish for a peace of mind...
We can deliver
From a source that has been stocked,
And ready to unlock from within!

    You’ve embraced the magical feel of Christmas through a child’s eyes with the wonder and joy of the Christ child’s birth. Love the whole thing especially, “To forgive and forget with gifts we give”, for is this not what his teachings are all about. Excellent write. (Report) Reply
