My Christmas Gift

My Christmas Gift

A Poem by Rodney Ray Hatchell / Unheardsong

                   My Christmas Gift

My Christmas Gift you want find under
a tree .
This year God open my eyes and awoke
my heart to see.
My Christmas gift I wish too feel the way
he feels when he blesses us not just on
Christmas Day.  
A family he placed in my life like the
Christ Child's in the manger who’s parents
excepted the generosity of others.
In this magical season of Love, Peace, and
joy he gave to me my wish .
A well placed ornament hidden by my
eyelashes I soon wiped away .  
When I approached to knock ,I notice a
child gazing out of the window a twinkle I
seen in her eyes watching as I tugged along
a wagon filled with toys.
A yoyo with bright green string a slinky  
the kind I played with as a child,  many
years ago.  
A jacket for a small boy and girl each.
But in a box I laid outside the door they’ll
fine on Christmas morning.
It’s the thing they need  the most.
It isn’t a toy.  
It cares the words from the host of Christmas
They’re on the card it reads, From, Jesus
And a friend.
What greater Christmas gift could have I  received  
than to have my name along side  My Lords in this
season of  miracles that  is my  Christmas gift.
What  is yours, Jesus may ask ?
