The season has crept around once more,
it slowly took over the reins.
Steering us down the road of joy,
with evergreens and candy canes.
Yards and houses glow so bright,
myriads of different lights now shine,
sparkling in the evening dark,
artwork now displayed so fine.
People rushing through each store,
looking hard for a special gift,
to wrap so neatly and add a name,
while through the ribbons they sift.
So many smiles and glowing eyes,
what magic is woven these days.
Something inside is making a change,
so much joy in many ways.
Inside each house a change takes place,
each nook and corner new things appear,
snowmen, Santa, elves and dolls,
stables and angels with star shining clear.
Each child in great expectation
grows more excited as time goes by,
waiting patiently for that special day
when “Merry Christmas” becomes the cry.
Everyone looking out their window,
waiting for green lawns to turn to white,
hoping the clouds moving in,
will bring the snow tonight.
Every heart now seems much lighter,
in man a change slowly takes place.
With thoughts of love and peace in mind,
a glow appears on every face.
What magic causes all of this
to change the hearts on earth?
God’s special child that came to us,
by the miracle of His birth.
Merry Christmas everyone, we say,
while we go on our merry way.
I wish it could last forever,
not just on this single day.
