It's a wonderful feeling
Made all the more specials because
I know this is just the beginning
Of the understanding and
Trust we will share, for with the time.
Sometimes I feel like a flower, opening up beneath
The golden warmth of your love,
Responding to the sunshine
That the very sight of you brings
I want to know you completely…
I want to give all of myself to you.
Holding nothing back
Except for the mystery that
Allows us to be separate people~
Joined by one beautiful love.
Merry Christmas with all my love.
Christmas in the air!
It's Christmas in the air!
Snowflakes in December
Children site with Santa's toys
Their gloves wiping crystalline ice,
Off shiny plastic
Our breath thick like fog
Mingles in oneness
As we stand back to
Look upon the completion
Of our Christmas trees
Giggling from heady wine
And feelings shared
It's Christmas in the air!
Dear Mom and Dad
Of the favorite memories of our family,
Mom and Dad ,
Christmas rekindles all the best we've ever had~
The wonderful traditions you taught us,
And we kept from year to year
Added to each Holiday
To make it's meaning clear.
Your warmth, smiles and laughter
Kept us eager to believe
In the magic and wonder
That was part of Christmas Eve,
And though Christmas
Have come and gone,
It seems that wishes did come true,
In the lasting love our family shares
Because of the caring by both of you.
Wish we could be together
Thinking of you
Makes the miles disappear,
Together we're looking at bright decorations,
Enjoying what we like to do,
Thinking of you makes the miles disappear~
For you're missed very much
All year through…
So just because you're
Far away, don't think
For a moment that you're forgotten.
I'm thinking about you because loving thoughts travel far,
And wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a New Year
Full of wonderful things.
Wish we could be together
The First Christmas
This very first Christmas
It's just like before
It's the first in this new Century
and there will be more
The only difference we will see
and at first does not seem true
why the tree getting shorter
and what happened to you?
Each year we get wiser, the older we get
we still think of Santa, and
we are not finished with him yet.
we still get excited,
Like we did Christmas's before
You see there is no difference,
it's just your height in the door.
So we take a moment this time far and near
to wish you a merry Christmas
and a happy new Year
Merry Christmas Year 2000
The Christmas Present by Billy M. Smallwood
I heard a knock on my door one Christmas Eve,
As I looked out my window a man I could see,
he was cold and seemed so lonely and upon a bended knee
he asked can you spare anything for me to eat...
I opened up the door and as I helped him in,
he looked up at me with such a peaceful grin,
As he drank down some coffee and had a bite to eat,
I put more wood on the fire so he could warm his feet...
Over there by the fireplace he warmed his tired hands,
I wonder where did he come from, this quiet white haired man,
but I wasn't at all afraid of his peaceful ways you see,
this man dressed in poor, almost as poor as me...
As he left he turned and thanked me for all I had done,
but he forgot to take his gloves, so out the door I run,
He was gone in the blizzard and I couldn't hardly see,
so I took his ole glove's back to the house with me...
Just a little after midnight I awoke in the dark,
there wasn't a bit of fire just glowing cinders in the dark,
and where I'd placed his gloves by my little christmas tree,
there laid a brand new pair, and a Christmas Card for me...
and it read....
You gave me shelter and food to keep me warm,
you even tried to bring me my gloves in the storm,
so here's you a new pair,... the finest ever seen...
as an angel of the Lord
I'll be sure to tell the King....Merry Christmas.......
The True Spirit of Christmas
by Marajo Tenderass
Lots of people
Rushing and pushing and shoving,
It's Christmas time again
Have to get all those things done
Hustle, bustle, quickly,
We must beat the sun.
Must get this and must get that
Maybe this nic, maybe that nak
When did it happen?
When did we lose track...
It's a race, yes it is
We are running, yes we are
But lets not forget
Before we get too far-
What is really really important
Doesn't take much to figure out
Take time to love
and love from the heart.
JINGLE TILLS, JINGLE TILLS
Rushing and fussing I race all round town,
Trying and buying, I drag bags around;
Would Jackie like this? Would Sarah like that?
If I get it wrong, then I'll look like a prat.
My blood pressure rises, my wallet grows thin,
I hate Christmas shopping; I\'d so love a gin...
This is the season of hope and good cheer -
I\'ll be glad when it\'s over, at least for this year!

Heaven's gift has come to man.
Mortal fate rests
Within tiny hallowed hands.
Shepherds singing, a shining star,
Kings bearing gifts from afar.
A scene of serene glory,
The weight of a holy hush,
The meaning of heaven\'s story,
\'Twas God\'s first CHRISTmas gift to us.
Who would recall the power of that day,
At the time when He was led away,
Bearing a crown, a robe, and fateful wounds?
Was He not the gift from heaven\'s womb?
Shall we turn from that holy day
And walk away unchanged?
Will we allow it to envelope our souls
Only to let it slowly slip away?
Through plastic, tinsel, parties and gifts,
Shopping, planning, and Christmas lights lit,
Can the simple gift be heard or seen,
Or does it quietly fade behind holiday sheen?
Let us not forget that He loves us so.
He loves us too much to let us go.
He sent a plan with His sacrifice
To forgive and cleanse and give us life.
Embrace the greatest gift of all;
Don\'t let your sense of the manger wane.
The gift of heaven is yours to receive.
It was the true reason He came.
Teddy Bear Sleigh
Snowflakes fly around the sled,
Some teddy bears love adventure on their sleds.
Daddy Bear holds the ropes to guide his flight,
Mama and baby bear sit together tight,
Laughter rings out when they curve over the hills,
Teddy bear sleigh rides are a winter thrill.
Scarfs of red and green plaid surround their furry necks,
Hoods of fur are keeping the winter air outside.
Riding in the sleigh makes a fun day,
That’s the teddy bear way.
