A Christmas poem


Real Meaning of Christmas by Brian K. Walters


In todays day and time,
it's easy to lose sight,
of the true meaning of Christmas
and one special night.



When we go shopping,
We say "How much will it cost?"
Then the true meaning of Christmas,
Somehow becomes lost.



Amidst the tinsel, glitter
And ribbons of gold,
We forget about the child,
born on a night so cold.



The children look for Santa
In his big, red sleigh
Never thinking of the baby
Whose bed was made of hay.



In reality when we look into the night sky,
We don't see a sleigh
But a star, burning bright and high.



A faithful reminder,
Of that night so long ago,
And of the child we call Jesus,



Whose love, the world would know.

Merry Christmas to EVERYONE of my blog readers!
