One Christmas Morning


One Christmas morning

On Christmas morning, I found I must have been bad,
Because presents from Santa; there's not one that I had.
I looked back on the year to see what I'd done,
What terrible deeds? But I found not a one.
Oh I wasn’t an angel but I tried to be good,
I did all the things that I thought that I should.
I was always polite; and I never did steal,
A white lie or two but no big deal.
I never cheated people or cheat on my wife.
So what was so bad; that I did in my life?
As I looked back on the year, I started to see,
The gifts I’d been given… not under the tree.
The respect of my peers and the fresh smell of rain,
The tender love of a woman who now shares my name.
The laughter of children and the smiles they share,
A really good life; filled with people who care.
I realized right then; standing next to the tree,
How selfish I’d been and Christmas wasn’t about me.
It took a moment or two to remember what Christmas was about,
It celebrates the birth of our savior and sacrifice with no doubts.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
