Too often the children are the innocent ones.

Did They Forget
December 3, 2009
Written by: Rose Marie Rideout

Christmas comes but once a year,
Often kids don’t think it’s fear.
They don’t seem to understand,
The celebration of one great man.

They make their choice and write their list,
Not one thing do they forget,
Except to put Christ in their thoughts,
Will one day be their  big regret.

Have parents forgotten to mention,
Why we celebrate this day each year,
Did they teach the little ones,
So each year they would care.

Did they tell them of this little Babe,
Wrapped in swaddling clothes,
In a stable in Bethlehem,
As the star so brightly rose.

Did they tell them of the three wise men,
And how they travelled far,
To bring special gifts to this new born king,
Led by the bright lit star.

Did they make their child understand,
This is His birth we celebrate,
To keep Him within our hearts,
Is never too late.
