Christmas Thoughts

Cold winds start to blow,
the windows start to shake
Snow begins to fall,
each perfect little flake
Windows full of light,
the houses seem to glow
Flashing little lights,
reflecting on the snow
Safe and warm inside,
the children try to sleep
Christmas time is near,
will be here in a week

Underneath the tree,
some presents in a pile
Parents always hope,
to make the children smile
Christmas lists so long,
but presents are not free
Did they get it right,
will have to wait and see
Not long left to go,
until that special time
Sharing hot mince pies,
and glasses full of wine

This year try your best,
to be there for someone
Do something that's nice,
not just because it's fun
Christmas is a time,
to spread a little joy
Be there for someone,
and not just give some toy
Not some boring gift,
that's just so you can boast
Give the gift of time,
that's what they need the most

About this poem

This poem was written on a cold winter day in December while sitting here with thoughts of Christmas spinning round in my head. No snow at the time, but more than a few sub zero temperatures and lots of ice cold wind, so I was thinking that maybe it won't be long!
