Christmas is near once again
To spend with loved ones dear
For laughter, joy and more
To visit those who are not near.
Sometimes the Christmas glee
Is not felt the same by all
It could be health, or it could be
Missing someone call.
It may be war, in far off lands
For those who cannot feel
The joy or happiness within
Or share a family meal.
It is God’s son who came to earth
Whose birth we celebrate
He came to teach us how to love
So let us not, this love abate.
Look around to see a need
And if you can at all
Help brighten someone’s day
Taking heed to God’s greatest call.
