The season of candy canes, Santa and snow.
Teddy Bears, twinkling, and warm candle glow.
Baked cookies and pie, sweet fragrance in the house.
Little joys of Christmas from each toy to furry mouse.
Stories brimming on the shelf.
Porcelain Angel and little green elf.
Crackling fire and music box jingle.
Family and friends feel the warmth and the tingle.
Escape from the day to day toil and struggle.
To a life of renewal and new hope to juggle.
For this once a year magical time shall appear.
Giving hope to my loved ones; how I wish you were here.
In the corner of the night of this soft, special day;
May this blessing fill your heart, today and always.
