Christmas Reality

tim204

On Christmas Eve 2014, I wrote this in 5 minutes on the side of Hwy 400 when Lian had to go pee. I don’t normally believe in “publishing” un-crafted, un-edited anything, but Christmas season is passing me by….

I hear “Peace On Earth” on the radio

And my kids fighting in the backseat.

I day-dream about a white Christmas,

Like the ones I used to know.

But I wake up to grey and brown

And black and No Snow.

 

Christ has always been better than Christmas.

Jesus is the best of all reasons.

He is the Saviour for all seasons.

Till You come back to Earth,

Be born again in my heart.

 

I haven’t harked to herald angels singing.

Just listening to my little cherub warble “Jingle Bells”.

Jesus got gifts from 3 Kings

My presents come from the Thrift Shop and the Dollar Store.

There are no Silent Nights

When you sleep beside a 12 lane highway’s roar.

 

Christ has always been better than Christmas.

Jesus is the best of all reasons.

He is the Saviour for all seasons.

Till You come back to Earth,

Be born again in my heart.

I can’t afford Silver Bells.

I haven’t seen a sleigh in snow

Since my childhood days.

I haven’t told it on a mountain or anywhere.

I just nod in agreement, when Sally Ann says

“Merry Christmas!”

 

Christ has always been better than Christmas.

Jesus is the best of all reasons.

He is the Saviour for all seasons.

Till You come back to Earth,

Be born again in my heart.
