Christmas Past

Many Christmases have passed
From toddler, to boy, to teenager, to manhood
Many Christmases with my own family
So many memories with family and friends

Of the twinkling tree
Of bubble lights, tinsel, and star on top
Of glass ornaments and Christmas songs

Presents stacked under the tree waiting to be opened
Christmas cards hung on the mantel and door frame
The smell of Christmas cooking
Turkey, stuffing, cakes filled me with delight

No longer is there the sound of kids
The sound of pure delight on Christmas morning
Seeing the excitement as they open presents
Many Christmases have passed

Reminiscing of Christmas passed, a feeling seems to touch me
Saying to me it’s a time to celebrate our Savior’s birth
Rekindling me, feeding my soul once more
Recognizing again the true meaning of Christmas

I no longer linger on Christmas past
For Christmas is a time of giving
A time of sharing
The time of Christ’s birth
