On That Day

Like most we wandered and wavered
and fell for the Devil's wily ways
But not on that day
On that day all sins were forgiven
Curses dissolved into blessings
Tension melted in the glow of good will
Evil evaporated in the light of truth
Death succumbed to life...

Hugging our sons and our daughters
Gently scolding wayward grandchildren
Slapping old friends on the back
Bragging and telling tall tales
Laughing hysterically at our lies

On that day there were no missing pieces
On that day the wounded world was healed
On that blessed day the Lord gave
it all made sense...

*Christmas Eve, 2009
