While spirits are uplifted in the local parish,
and folks take pause for thoughts to cherish;
While faithful hearts recite "Peace on Earth",
and old friends catch up on news and mirth;
While chefs prepare for the perfect dish,
and Santa listens to each youngster wish;
While lovers cuddle in winter's snows,
and gifts are topped with pretty bows;
While outdoor displays sparkle and shine,
and homes refresh with spruce and pine;
While trees are trimmed in all their glory,
and classrooms practise "The First Christmas Story";
While shoppers panic in annual fashion,
thoughts of you increase in constant passion.
As leaders express hopes for all that is fair,
your well-being is truly all that I care.
As children smile with each dreamt sugar plum,
my love for you, Sweetest, still leaves me numb.
If given one wish for which I could pray,
with all my heart and soul, I'd say:
There's been no Christmas more bright and cheery
Than any one moment spent warm and near Thee.
Yours... Truly Yours,
