The ashen somber sky greets my day
The golden sun no longer seeks to peek my way
The crisp forcible wind bites my freezing cheeks
The mall is packed by shoppers acting like freaks
The radio blared out endless songs of holiday cheer
The weather speaks of low febricity that cause Texans to fear
Houses outside are decked with lights all aglow
The door of each house are adorned with a bow
Down in the square, a choir sings of carols beloved
As the stars twinkle brightly from high up above
A haywagon pulls by with children all bundled
The ice on the ground causes all the stumble.
The stockings and nativity are put up with care
The music plays softly behind with dancing so fair
The tree is awash with lights and ornaments and tinsel
The interior is full and not one block remains dull
But no scent is caught from its green plastic needles
For many a times, an aroma or none can start a quarrel
Bells and Santa are both easily caught on the doors
But socks and slippers protect our feet from the cold tile floor
My brother and I surf the web for secret tiny gifts
I want to make sure to check everyone off my list
The church is packed full on the holy Christmas night
As we sing carols throughout the service by soft candlelight
The Secret Santa gifts gets my heart beating fast
Makes my wonder when Christmas can’t be a blast.
But one must remember and never forget
The reason of the season or you will regret
You find the word hidden in the name
I know this word which sets my heart aflame
Christ is in Christmas, O let joy ring!
Why keep quiet? Let the church sing!
Look to the manger and be quiet and still
See our Lord and express how you feel
Listen to the lyrics and hear the message ringing true
With Jesus in our hearts, we will never feel blue.
Merry Christmas everyone! Remember the true reason we celebrate the season and cherish
the ones you love.
