The Meaning Of Christmas



Buried underneath

all the bags

& bows

& paper

is the true meaning

of Christmas


somehow lost

in the fury of the day

the mad rush

the pursuit of trivial things


what lies beneath

is the companionship

the caring

the love exchanged


for this be thankful

for this be glad

without this exchange

of giving love

a sadder world would be


and none would know

the warmth within the human heart

the real meaning of Christmas.
