Time for Christmas


Time for Christmas
time for joy
opening the presents
hoping for a toy

snowball fights
and sleigh rides
Christmas lights
and hot chocolate

all great things
happen on this day
but we've forgotten
what all the bible says

time for Christmas
time for family
going door to door
always caroling

it's not about
the gifts and snow
it's about family
and putting on a show

showing people everywhere
what Christmas really means
having a warm feeling
when you bring someone glee

so think about
what all I've said
and again once more
right before bed

so see the light
on Christmas morn
and on that night
experience the love

time for Christmas
look high above
to Santa and God
and you'll feel the love

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
