Everyone has a Christmas story.
Everyone has a tale.
Everyone sees the yuletide joys
Over hill and every dale.
We all have a Christmas story
But not all are filled with joy
There are those that awake this day
Without a laugh, or toy.
We sometimes lose the Christmas message
To give and share a greeting
To spread the feelings of hope and love
And that joy should never be fleeting.
We try to find our own Christmas cheer
Whether in work or unemployment
Or our bravest soldiers awaiting orders
All ready for deployment.
We live in a world separated by words
Like Class and Segregation
Though we try with might to live our lives
Ignoring this degradation.
In a world of differing lives
In a life of continuing strife
We find small comforts within our world
To find joy and meaning to life.
And while those of us all share the warmth
Of a house of food and cheer
We need to bear a thought for those
Who live in despair and fear.
Share your warmth, share your love
T’is a season to care and give
We all possess the power within
To celebrate and live.
So when inner warmth meets winter chill
Fireside balm to frigid snow
Spread goodwill to all mankind
Make the Christmas spirit glow.
