This Christmas I wish you not a thing – Dec 2007

This Christmas I wish you

not a thing –

no fancy gift

no expensive ring

not even a toy

of temporary joy

 

This Christmas I wish you

so much less –

less guilt and shame

less resentment

less fear

less bitterness and pain

 

This Christmas I wish you

what is very near –

trees covered with snow

big fluffy clouds

a stranger’s smile

a friend’s hand

 

This Christmas I wish you

what you already have –

a loving heart

a forgiving spirit

and the wisdom of a thousand angels

by your side

 

 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
