A Christmas Wish

December 22, 2011

Christmas Day is drawing near
Decorations abound everywhere I go
Twinkling lights sparkle in the night
Carols on the radio that make me smile
Looking forward to the morning itself
Seeing the joy in innocent eyes
Little hands busy ripping paper from packages
Delighted on discovering the surprises inside
Sharing special moments with those I love
And remembering those not with me today
The spirit of Christmas brings out our very best
The spirit of love, the spirit of peace
The spirit of kindness, the spirit of joy
The spirit of thoughtfulness and spirit of forgiveness
The spirit of sharing and the spirit of hope
If I could have but one wish this year
It would be for the spirit of Christmas
To be alive every day for all of you I hold dear
And for the spirit of Christmas
To dwell forever in your heart

Merry Christmas!!
