Christmas is a time for Love; a time for Joy and Peace;
A time to trim the Christmas Tree and a time to stuff the geese.
It’s a time when we can come together, however far or near;
To shed a little hope into a world of sorrow and fear.
Yet Christmas could be all year ’round, if only we would try
To gently wipe an old man’s brow or soothe a baby’s cry.
If we could smile throughout the year as we do on Christmas Day;
Just think what happiness we’d shed along life’s weary way.
To give a gift of Hope to one who otherwise has none;
To be a Friend to somebody whom everyone else has shun.
To be Forgiving of our faults, and of our sisters and our brothers;
To Live in Peace and Harmony with ourselves and with each other.
Ah, don’t you see that Christmas is more than opening up the gifts;
It’s more than singing Christmas Carols and rolling in big snow drifts.
It’s a feeling that can stay with you throughout each day, all year;
And all it takes is a loving heart…..and a sensitive little tear...
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!!
