FOR CHRISTMAS I AM

FOR CHRISTMAS I AM

As Winter approaches you think of me,

In your home, only for Christmas I’ll exist for thee.

I’ll stand as I’m dressed with lights sparkling bright,

All watch with amazement as I light up the night.

Around me with ornaments will hang so to see,

Many different colors on Christmas Eve.

There will be at my top a hat of a star,

Shining for all to see near and far.

Candy canes on my branches, one just for you,

Until next season, I’ll be waiting for you.

IF YOU HAD NO TOMORROW

IF YOU HAD NO TOMORROW

Would the birds be a sound singing in your ear,

The mountains not so much appreciated, would their beauty appear.

Would you see the sky in a different way,

Things would become precious for only a day.

The taste of a peach would rest in your mouth,

No time to fight as the hourglass runs out.

The wind against your face, the oceans spray,

Your feet in the sand, to loved ones, what would you say.?

If you had no tomorrow, if you could do one last thing,

Would you thank the lord for giving you everything.?

FOR YOU AT CHRISTMAS

FOR YOU AT CHRISTMAS
Keith Garrett

Hear the bells ring and the harps play as snow falls,

Through the cold, white, trails I’ll travel, I’ll find you.

Feel the wind blow, listen as it whips through the trees,

Like the eerie sound of an organ or flute being played.

For you at Christmas I’ll dance to angels singing softly,

Playing heavenly music on clouds high above, clouds like snow.

I’ll create a tune heard by your ears alone, love whispered,

My gift is a simple idea that all is possible, to dream, baby dream.

In the Winter evening sky may you wish upon a star, wish darling,

May peace and all the wonderful things Imagined be yours.

For you at Christmas may god shine a light down upon you,

Deliver to you a gift of a prayer that happiness is yours.

For you at Christmas, for you at Christmas, For you at Christmas.

FROM EYES OF A WINTER CHILD

FROM EYES OF A WINTER CHILD

It’s almost Winter, it will be cold and the snow will fall,

I’ll put on my boots and warm clothes for an outside adventure.

My friends and i will make a snowman and throw snowballs at each other,

An Amesbury Winter with Icicles hanging from the roofs.

The woods and hills will be covered with blankets of snow,

The freezing temperatures will be felt through my clothes.

Our Christmas tree will be full of colors so bright,

I wait for Christmas, Santa will fly high across the Massachusetts sky.

Reindeer will guide him through the night,

From the North Pole, these thoughts from eyes of a Winter child.

The snow will fall on one Christmas Eve, I will see,

From eyes of a Winter child, I did see,

Once upon a time a child did believe.

A home once in the snow, a lifetime ago,

I remember from eyes of a Winter child.

SHADOWS IN THE SNOW

SHADOWS IN THE SNOW

So cold it is on a Winter’s day,

The trees in the distance are empty with a touch of frost upon them.

Appears very quiet with not a soul to be found,

Nature by itself, nature not disturbed.

A fence runs across the snow covered land,

Followed by shadows that accompany its path.

Around the trees, through the hills, and everywhere,

As the sun goes down there are shadows, shadows in the snow.

IF YOU BELIEVED IN SANTA, YOU CAN BELIEVE IN GOD,BELIEVE IN JESUS

IF YOU BELIEVED IN SANTA

YOU CAN BELIEVE IN GOD

BELIEVE IN JESUS

When you were a child you believed in santa as he flew across the sky,

He traveled the night bringing presents to children throughout the world.

He lived at a magical place up at the north pole where elves made toys,

Reindeer that flew you thought were real, then listen to this if you believed in santa.

He created the universe, heaven and earth are a masterpiece from god in heaven,

If you do pray then you will see and feel special things of hope and peace in your life.

You can believe in god because the cycle of life is a magnificent gift without coincidence,

It may be that we don’t see god physically but if we believe then we see him with our hearts.

Believe in Jesus as he did once walk this earth over two thousand years before,

He was a real man whom spread the words of god and was a hard working carpenter.

The son of god he is if in your heart you believe just as you could believe in fairy tales,

It is truth that Jesus sacrificed his life for others as he died in pain on a cross of reality.

A SMALL TOWN CHRISTMAS

A SMALL TOWN CHRISTMAS

As it was when I was young living in a small town,

Neighbors who mostly knew one another, a good morning.

Down town an enormous tree decorated for all to see,

It’s getting cold and windy, snow is beginning to fall.

Street lights are swaying, there is music playing in a store,

Shoppers going here and there, friendly with a smile.

A group of children are bundled in their jackets walking,

House to house they go caroling, singing out for Christmas.

Warm and cozy are they whom are in their homes this night,

Enjoying a fire together as they read stories to the children.

It’s getting late so off to bed they go waiting for Santa Clause,

Much snow outside fore in the morning a snowman awaits.

A small town Christmas, there is nothing that compares.
