A Time, A Season
It is the season of love and devotion,
a time to reflection upon our pass,
a break from societyís steady commotion,
realizing our mortal lives wonít 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,
itís in the giving, not the you and me,
unselfish acts, like our Saviorís 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.
