Christmas - Poem by Emily Casbourn

Did you know that when it snows I start to sing a lullaby?
I wait upon the arrival of a golden Christmas Eve
In the rooms I happily sigh
Weighing choices of my life
Christmas comes but once a year
Yet no one sees the anger here
We waste our time shopping
We spend our time not caring
When you finally see it
It no longer exists to them
Those poor little children
Dying on and on
They wait for one jolly man
Yet he never does appear
He who has the money shall help them out some how
We watch and prey that we will be together
Yet in our hearts we know better
Upon the tree an angel sings
Yet she can't be heard
The song she sings is one of hope
Many still do not know
This is Christmas and it is sad
We need to see it all come together
Next time you shop make sure you remember
The clothes could help another
Merry Christmas to all
A family time has begun
Nothing more righteous
Nothing less wrong
Christmas time together is a splendid hour indeed
Have a great holiday
Help spread it around
Merry Christmas to all
Remember my words
Have faith and it will be brought
For those who are in the most need
Thank you for reading
Thank you for seeing
Christmas is more than presents and trees
It is family time and cherishing your life
Merry Christmas to all
Have a wondrous new year! !
