THOUGHTS AT CHRISTMAS - a re-post

entry picture

Christmas is a time for remembering the past, especially family and friends who are no longer with us.

But humanity is blessed with eternal hope and optimism that serve to keep us going towards.....?????

.......................................................

How fitting now in deep December

When days are short and spirits low

That in our hearts we will remember

Those we knew who had to go

 

Christmas hours are briefly bright

Their spark is spent in winter's pay

And soon surrenders to each night

When light retreats and fades away

 

But O how wonderful this living!

How magical this life we own

That we are given to go on giving

When time takes those that we have known

.................................................................................

Christmas
