Christmas Is The Reason I Believe In Love
Blessings fall like snowflakes
resting on each our heads
doors open to rapprochement,
and merry words are said.
I love how we find and share with the
ones we seemed to have lost,
family fires rekindled so great
the chill winds of feud are consumed.
Even warmer to embrace
the blissful essence of the season.
the coming of salvation, the birth of a babe
the whole world from damnation saved.
Days spent in grateful celebration of life
nights aglow with love’s candlelight
a mother’s smile, an angel’s carol
a child’s giddy cheer
as gifts are unwrapped.
Christmas is when miracles are possible
mirages are real and graspable.
so I’ll wear this Noel faith into the new year
in case phony doubt comes knocking.
And if the storms run violent, I’ll be still and remember
that Christmas is the reason I can count on His love.
