Before Christ

It was the night before his birth
There was famine, drought and dearth
People waited meek and mild
For the birth of that special child

All prayed, heads bowed near their beds
Doom is around, they all said
Only his coming can pave the way
For them to on this hollow earth stay

Almighty watched from high above
And sent his favourite Son of love
And with lightning the news of his birth came
A race saved by his very name

B.C -Before Christ

    oops, I just saw that I commented on this one the other day. Dang it, I can't find a one of yours that I have not commented on. Let me go looking. . . (did you know they removed all our poems from others seeing them? We can only see each other's last 200 poems. I am so bummed out about it!!)

    You chose a good topic for BC, Tahera. I hope you do well in the contest. I especially liked the last stanza.

    So many thousands of years had passed before Christ was born. It's sad that those who were born earlier could not have been exposed to his wisdom and compassion. Very spiritually uplifing entry for Deb's contest. Wishing you success, Tahera. Love, Carolyn
