(Written Christmas Day)
Though times they change and we move on in life,
We cannot say at Christmas, we’re not blessed.
Food to eat, fine company, we confess —
To much chocolate, many sweets, little strife;
Compared to the state of many a place ripe,
With destruction, death, such hate which festers.
To much is wrong, but be at peace nonetheless.
His time draws near, have cheer; lasting hurt wiped.
Peace on earth, goodwill to all mankind, let’s —
Be kind to our neighbours and remember to share,
Life is tough, let no one be in despair.
Let us share the good news, for He is born set —
Healing broken hearts and pains of the past bled,
Great physician who taught, love each other, care.
