    Hi all,

    Does anyone have a favorite Christmas poem they can share? I am looking for something on the true meaning of Christmas.

    I always liked this one:



    Christmas miracle

    There is a miracle in Christmas...
    There is a stillness in the air
    And excitement in the shining eyes
    Of children everywhere

    There is a miracle in Christmas
    As each silent night enfolds
    And we see again the promise
    That this holy season holds

    There's a wonder in traditions,
    In the stories passed along
    In our thoughtfulness towards others
    And in voices raised in song

    There is a reassuring comfort
    In the joy glad tidings bring
    And an inner peace from honouring
    And praising Christ, the King

    There's a magic in the season
    In the kindnesses we do
    Whether joys are shared by many
    Or among a special few

    There's awareness of our gratitude
    For blessings from above
    There's a miracle in Christmas
    And the miracle is love

    When I lost my mother in 1999. My very close knit family (Dad, my 5 brothers and my sister.) Were devasted to say the least. Although she passed away in March. Come the first Christmas was extremely tough. She loved Christmas and everything about it. From decorating to baking to entertaining. I found this poem online and gave it to my dad.




    Christmas In Heaven

    [SIZE=+1]I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]with tiny lights like heaven's stars reflecting on the snow.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]The sight is so spectacular please wipe away that tear[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]but the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]I have no words to tell you of the joy their voices bring[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]for it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]I can't tell you of the splendor or the peace here in this place[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]Can you just imagine Christmas with our Savior face to face?[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]I'll ask him to lift your spirit as I tell him of your love[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]so then pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]Please let your hearts be joyful and let your spirit sing[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+1]for I am spending Christmas in heaven and I'm walking with the King.[/SIZE]

    Eggnog, tinsel, falling snow,
    Buttered rum and mistletoe,
    Trimming trees and hanging lights,
    The sound of carolers fills the night.
    Shopping hours long and hard,
    Visa phones and cancels card,
    Unpaid bills and mounting debt,
    Family gathers, depression sets.
    Drinking starts. Harsh words are said,
    Dysfunction rears its yuletide head.
    Argument turns to shovin',
    Drunken brother punches cousin.
    Tree tips over popping lights,
    Curtains catch, house ignites.
    No one hears the reindeer cries,
    Wedged in chimney, Santa dies.
    Though he kicked,
    And did perspire,
    His chestnuts roasted,
    On an open fire.


    Probably not what you had in mind...Nevermind...

    I think this says it all :)

    In todays day and time,
    it's easy to lose sight,
    of the true meaning of Christmas
    and one special night.

    When we go shopping,
    We say "How much will it cost?"
    Then the true meaning of Christmas,
    Somehow becomes lost.

    Amidst the tinsel, glitter
    And ribbons of gold,
    We forget about the child,
    born on a night so cold.

    The children look for Santa
    In his big, red sleigh
    Never thinking of the baby
    Whose bed was made of hay.

    In reality when we look into the night sky,
    We don't see a sleigh
    But a star, burning bright and high.

    A faithful reminder,
    Of that night so long ago,
    And of the child we call Jesus,
    Whose love, the world would know.

    Santa's Prayer on
    Christmas Eve

    By Warren D. Jennings
    The sleigh was all packed, the reindeer were fed,
    But Santa still knelt by the side of the bed.

    "Dear Father," he prayed "Be with me tonight.
    There's much work to do and my schedule is tight.

    I must jump in my sleigh and streak through the sky,
    Knowing full well that a reindeer can't fly.

    I will visit each household before the first light,
    I'll cover the world and all in one night.

    With sleigh bells a-ringing, I'll land on each roof,
    Amid the soft clatter of each little hoof.

    To get in the house is the difficult part,
    So I'll slide down the chimney of each child's heart.

    My sack will hold toys to grant all their wishes.
    The supply will be endless like the loaves and the fishes.

    I will fill all the stockings and not leave a track.
    I'll eat every cookie that is left for my snack.

    I can do all these things Lord, only through You,
    I just need your blessing, then it's easy to do.

    All this is to honor the birth of the One,
    That was sent to redeem us, Your most Holy Son.

    So to all of my friends, least Your glory I rob,
    Please Lord, remind them who gave me this job."

    Night Of Nights & Christmas

    NIGHT OF NIGHTS


    In the tiny town of Bethlehem,
    Born in a stable, an infant lie.
    While he slept his first dreamless night,
    A whole universe of stars passed by.

    When Jesus Christ our savior was born
    Most of the angels began to sing,
    Of peace, and good will to all mankind,
    And alleluia to earth's new king.

    There were those angels, who did not sing,
    For they had passed through the devil's gate.
    They knew this young lad belonged to God,
    And for them salvation was too late.

    So let's rejoice, and sing with great cheer,
    That night when Jesus slept without fear.
    For our Lord's birthday comes once a year,
    On that night of nights we hold so dear.




    CHRISTMAS




    Husbands with ladders hang lights on their home,
    As all who have no one feel sad and alone.
    The churches are full of the faithful that sing,
    For the birth of our Lord, is a spiritual thing.

    The sound of Christmas sweetly fills the air,
    While frantic shoppers hustle from here to there.
    The windows of storefronts at this time of year,
    Reflect all their wonders as Christmas draws near.

    Little ones stand looking with their nose pressed to glass,
    As model trains on display come speeding past.
    The path to Santa is lined with girls and boys,
    With a list in their heart of their favorite toys.

    The stores shelves are crammed with dolls that crawl or walk,
    Games, cars, trucks, planes and stuffed toys that sing or talk.
    The miracle of Christmas comes once a year,
    When all that we love seems more precious and dear.

    This is what I'll send to my friends on Christmas Eve

    It's Christmas Eve

    It's Christmas Eve here in the North Pole

    My busiest time of year

    Everyone seems very busy

    To get it all done in time

    Get the sleigh out come on come on

    Over here now that's it

    Now I'll have one last check

    A Dolly with a stitchy smile

    A bright red fire engine

    Lots of great marbles to play

    Including a football

    Good it seems everything is here

    Is Rudolph's nose glowing bright red?

    We'll need him to guide us tonight

    I think everything is ready

    I don't want to be late

    I hope the girls boys leave milk & cookies for me

    Aswell a carrot for Rudolph

    I hope they don't peep tonight

    Right everyone push

    Up I go Santa is on his way

    See you all on Christmas Eve

    Wow, fantastic.

    A few years ago I wrote my own second verse for Carol of the Bells. It kinda reflects the thoughts I said in this thread.

    O, once the bells,
    Dark, shining bells
    Creep into light,
    Sharing their might.

    Christmas is here,
    Making us hear
    Cries of our friends,
    Reality bends.

    Dong ding dong ding,
    Mem'ries they bring
    Thoughts of our past,
    Forever they last.

    All seem to see,
    Lights are the key.
    From where, from where?
    In our heart's care.

    Oh how they pound,
    Freeing the bound
    All over Earth,
    Shouting their worth.

    Mighty, they ring,
    While people bring
    Thoughts of good cheer,
    Christmas is here.

    Merry merry merry merry Christmas,
    Merry merry merry merry Christmas.

    On on they send,
    On without end.
    Their hopeful cheer,
    To ev'ry ear.

    Ding Dong Ding Dong.
    (©2005-2007 Andrew Rabon)


    I think it works because most versions of the song run through it twice, so I can kinda think both verses to myself. :)
