This Christmas Time

Winter is here once again.
It is that special time of year when
Snow is falling and all is white
And Christmas lights dazzle, oh so bright!

The days are shorter and nights are long
When Christmas carollers sing their songs.
The festive spirit from a joyful choir
Brings comfort and warmth like an open fire.

Our children play and in the snow they can
Work together to build a snowman.
And when it’s frozen, on the lake they skate.
"How many more days until Christmas to wait?"

The time is near and the shopping’s almost done.
From the school all children surely run.
With Christmas markets and good company,
It's a time for friends and family.

Yet amidst it all, please bear a thought
For all of those who don’t have a lot.
Love and kindness from your family and mine
To one and all this Christmas time.
