Christmas Love! - Poem by Joseph Tanner

Is Christmas dying?
Holly that hang from the door is disappearing,
Lights don’t shine so bright.
Christmas goodwill and spirit is hard to be found,
Feeling I’ve found my scrooge.
Is it now that I’ve grown I see a different picture,
Not so tinted in green and gifts.
Santa filling my stocking,
Everything such a dream through a child eyes.
Nativity plays being played at school,
The birth of Christ instilled into our lives.
Life is changing with so many different cultures and beliefs.
Will the true meaning be lost?
When we have people digging a hole with their wallets.
Christmas is not about the biggest present,
Or how much money you’ve spent.
Christmas for me is about love,
Giving it through goodwill, with a smile or just being there.
People may lose faith in religion,
Never lose faith in Christmas,
Christmas is love!

    Loving this even more. Speaks the bittersweet truth.
    Seems like thats how it is for everyone I mean at the moment i am onlii fifteen but yet whenver it comes around to christmas i still get happy onlii to be dissappointed in the fact that my sister who passed will never be there and those of my siblings who are here are to busy with their lifes and the christmas turns into a sad lonely day.
    Love Melissa.

    always love!
    without that tenderness
    the harsh world triumps
    and withers the heart
    but this lovely poem
    calls the soul
    back to itself
    back to what must be felt
    if peace shall truly
    here and forever
    a wonderful poem (Report) Reply
