Thoughts On Christmas
All the children’s eyes are smiling,
Christmas Eve is finally here!
Outside my window snow is falling,
This brightest evening of the year.
Children dream of Christmas morning;
Santa Claus is on the way …
And I, a father, watch it snowing,
And drift back to another day
When I, a child, watched in wonder
As Christmas filled the world with joy.
I see myself, in faded shadows,
Long ago, a little boy.
The house is quiet, dark, and still,
And I can’t sleep although I’m trying.
The children’s dreams are filled with visions
Of Santa Claus and reindeer flying.
In the silence of this evening
I watch the winter snowflakes fall;
Time is such a precious gift…
But love’s the greatest gift of all.
Merry Christmas… to all of you from both of us!
