A Time, A Season
It is the season of love and devotion,
a time to reflection upon our pass,
a break from society’s steady commotion,
realizing our mortal lives won’t last.
Time for family and friends to share,
giving thanks to the Lord up above,
for the real treasures of life we share,
along with the gentle peace of a dove.
Rainbow lights upon a tree of green,
brightens spirits setting them a glow,
birth of baby Jesus, hearts all a gleam,
sounds of music with an angelic flow.
Now, from what is, to what should be,
war and tyranny, to peace on earth,
it’s in the giving, not the you and me,
unselfish acts, like our Savior’s birth.
Open your heart, you too will believe,
the proof is in the wonders you see,
open hearts allow spirits to conceive,
realizing there has to be more than me.
