A Yuletide Wish

by Reilley
(Dedham, MA)

More than simply a time for fun,
Christmas is when we look within;
Observing how we treat everyone,
Celebrating release from personal sin.

The honest smile on a child’s face,
The warmth of giving in one’s heart,
The one-ness of the human race,
Each a fine place for love to start.

Despite the range of beliefs or creed,
Without regard for country or skin,
Caring is allowed to grow and succeed,
And Love is encouraged to prevail and win.

So give your heart to those whom you know
And keep in mind those far and wide
Who yet have so very far to go
Let Peace on Earth reign world-wide.
