Christmas Wishes

A Poem by Jane Bruce

A poem about Christmas



Christmas time, tidings greetings,

The holly and the Ivy and family meetings,

Christmas turkey with all the trimmings,

Carol singers, Christmas hymns,

Decorations on the Christmas tree,

Excited children their faces you see,

Waiting for Santa to deliver their presents,

On Christmas Eve you show them his presence,

A carrot for Rudolph, milk and cookie for Santa,

While the parents have their normal banter,

Hoping and praying for snow to fall,

For a white Christmas for each and all,

A magical time for all to share,

From far and wide they're always there,

For the Christmas holiday and family time,

It's precious and timeless the day to shine,

The most wonderful day for most of us together,

But spare a thought for the homeless in the cold winter weather,

Who brave the streets alone and without,

A family to share and so full of doubt,

There's always two sides both good and bad,

For some it's priceless for others it's sad,

No-one should be alone this time of year,

It's heartbreaking to see people homeless and full of tears,

Wishing for prosperity for all around,

A home, a family, a solid bound,

Of direction for future happiness and wealth,

For all to share with good living and health,

Me making a wish with my heart and hope,

For the less fortunate while they learn to cope,

With a Christmas alone, hungry and frail,

Hoping one day that God will prevail,

To perform this miracle we all hope for one day,

That every human being is treated the same way.
