Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down

To the tune of "Santa Clause Is Coming To Town"

You better look up,
prepare for His sight.
The Lord will come back
some day or some night.
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down.

He's making a list.
He's paid the great price.
Who's going in route
to His paradise?
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down.

He sees you when you're breathing.
He knows you need His grace.
He knows that we have all been bad,
but He died to take our place.

With bright Seraphim and bright Cherubim,
Trumpy trumpets, and drummy drum drums,
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down.

He sees you when you're weeping.
He offers His embrace.
He knows you like nobody else,
yet He loves you anyway.

You better not doubt.
You wanna know why?
Your life could end soon.
There's no second try.
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down
Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Down

tired of me

am i all that you wanted
am i what you were askin for 
or am i just like last years christmas toys?
you're tired of me

i see a different side of you
after one problem we're though, we start over again
you're locked up and away from me
you go farther and farther away
you're tired of me

am i all that you wanted
am i what you were askin for
or am i just like last years christmas toys?
you're tired of me

you used to love me
now you doubt me
you used to trust me
now you fear me
you were just like me
now we're different. 
you dont understand me.  you dont even care!

am i all that you wanted 
am i what you were askin for 
or am i just like last years christmas toys?
you're tired of me

i see a different side or you
after one problem we're through.  we start over again
you're locked up and away from me
you go farther and farther away
you're tired of me

you're listenin to lies
and to my surprise. you believe the words they spit in your eyes.
what did i do, to get this from you?
you never even asked me if it was true!
why do you do this to me?

am i all that you wanted 
am i what you were askin for 
or am i just like last years christmas toys?
you're tired of me

i guess love doesnt live here anymore
im fallin and dont know what to do
im tired of the mess, but i dont wanna live without you!
what do you want me to do?
or is it true....
                         you're tired of me

now you doubt me
you used to trust me
now you fear me
you were just like me
now we're different
you dont understand me.  you dont even care!

am i all that you wanted
am i what you were askin for 
or am i just like last years christmas toys?
youre tired of me

Love in July

Someone is lost and afraid
Someone who wanders the night
Someone who cries in the dark
And who waits for the light
Someone clings by a thread, 
Under harsh summer skies...
Someone we pass on the street

There are strangers we see
Whose paths we have crossed
Where the cruel fates were tossed
Where loneliness creeps
Where all hope has been lost

Don't cast aside...give just a glance
Where heartache abides, offer a chance
To heal wounded pride
Don't brush aside 

Somewhere are those who have none
Alone in the sun
Somewhere a hungry child sleeps and a mother that weeps
So frightened each day of being alive
Look in her eyes...

Someone who needs just a friend
Someone who needs helping hands
Someone who, like it or not
Will need you to share..... a little, a lot, 
Help her survive, or give him a start
A gift, big or small, a piece of your heart,
Carry her pain, so she can walk tall......

On a bright summer's day
Bring Christmas their way...
Where rainbows begin
To a place in the sun
Where the smiles never end

Don't look away ....be someone's friend..
Give a piece of yourself 
Don't sit on the shelf
Bring joy to those eyes...
A Christmas surprise
Wrapped with love in July!!

Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas tree
Oh Christmas tree
Oh no I’m singing to a Christmas tree

Rum eggnog in me
Rum eggnog in me
Oh no I’m singing to the Christmas tree

Oh Christmas tree

Much pleasure thou can give me

Oh mistletoe 
Oh mistletoe 
I’hve a Christmas tree I want to show

Oh, I just kissed a Christmas tree

Oh Christine tee hee

I thought you was a Christmas tree

No more rum for me
No more rum for me

Or my wife will toss me out
With the Christmas tree


Notes: I have no wife, and I have no tree, I may have some rum, but shhhhhh

Santa's Seeing Red

-------------------------------------------------------------
Santa’s Seeing Red

Late one evening up at the pole
Santa was watching TV
He shook his head as he started for bed
After seeing how people could be
All night long he tossed and turned
I guess he just couldn’t let go
He saw a sleigh and watched burn
As it sat there in the snow
When he woke He realize 
That Christmas was actually dead
He couldn’t sleep with those sugarplums 
Dancing inside his head, Now it’s said
      Santa’s seeing red

That next morning, Santa was warming
His hands by a fireside
Someone had set the toyshop a flame
But there was no one,  to blame in site
The elves then noticed the deer were gone
Someone must have let them go
But they never seemed to take noticed 
There were no tracks left in the snow
That same day they had a feast 
But not a single word was said
About were all the meat came from
That was stuffed inside the bread, with Christmas dead
      Santa’s seeing red

After dinner Santa stood up
And laid off all of his crew
He said the world was so screwed up
There was nothing He could do
He said that people hearts were colder
Much colder than the Arctic’s air
They're filled with greed, and blind to the needs 
Of poor people everywhere, 
So Father Christmas will be no more
For the little girls and little boys
They can say goodbye to all of those treats 
And all those fricken' toys,  Because instead
     Santa’s seeing red

So when the twenty-fifth rolls by
You can treat it like another day
Santa’s found a new hometown
And a different game to play
He now sits back upon a beach
With women and booze he likes
Forgetting about frozen toes
And all of those silent nights 
So don’t you pout and you better watch out
For that lump of coal instead
You did your part now add to your cart
All the things that I’ve just said, and where it’s lead
     To Santa’s seeing red

Some say that giving is more blessed
And better than to receive
Santa will put you to the test
And see what you believe
So pass a man who’s homeless
Without reaching for a little doe
For what you do might follow you 
No matter where you go
Now you’re sitting on Christmas eve
Just thinking about what I’ve said
You’ll all miss your shiny gifts
But not the people without bread,  so stay bed
         Cause Santa’s seeing red
                        
So don’t look at the poor folks
Just look the other way
And Christ won’t be the only one
That’s missing on Christmas day, 
Just drink until you’re merry
And feast until you’re full
He knows that you’ve been naughty
Cause he’s not gullible 
So when you see him on the street
It’s a sight that you should dread
Cause he knows all your sins
And they're stored inside his head or so it’s said
         Santa’s seeing red


Now it’s time to anti up 
And dig into your stash
If you want him to stay quiet
Better cough up a little cash
And I think that you’ll remember
Christmas time every year
It’s time to give to Santa
Or live in constant fear
So you had better be real nice
And kick in a little bread
And you’ll better not think it twice
Or your reputation will be dead, like I said
Santa’s seeing red

ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU

I was just trying to remember the past
 trying to remember the good people
 and the bad people,
 that i came across on my way,

i want you to know
that you are among the good people
 that left a good trace in my life,

once again i just want to say thank you
for passing through my life,
is so short but is wonderful
i want you here forever.

Santa's Helper

"Santa's Helper" is a children's song, sung to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot".

I am Santa's helper;
Look at me,
Wrapping presents
Merrily.

Soon it will be Christmas...
Don't you know?
Gotta' get Santa's sleigh
Ready to go!

Author's Note: "Santa's Helper" makes a good activity song for children:

I am Santa's helper;
Look at me, (child points to himself)
Wrapping presents (child mimics wrapping gifts)
Merrily. (child smiles)

Soon it will be Christmas... (child points to calendar or clock)
Don't you know? (child holds hands out to sides and shrugs shoulders)
Gotta' get Santa's sleigh
Ready to go! (child mimics stuffing a sleigh with toys)

That Christmas Feeling

A snowy Christmas is what we all prayed for
Probably because it never happened before
We didn’t need it to have Christmas cheer
But it sure would be nice to see the white stuff this year

You can’t force it; that Christmas feeling just comes to you 
Can’t tell you how, but even when it’s overdue..
Life’s trials sometimes get in the way
But if you’re open to it, that Christmas feeling will come to you and stay
…If you’re open, it will come to you and stay.

One Christmas a few years back, I was having a drink in an old country bar
Listening to a guy play Blue Christmas on guitar
An old bar tender poured me another beer, looked over and said
By the shape of your dungarees, it’s been one hell of a year.

Christmas had me thinking, Is this how it ought to be?
Usually it was a Spirit, most would say Holy, which helped me to see
Then I smiled, ‘cause a thought showed me, it might not have turned out okay
If in 3rd grade, Mrs. Harrington hadn’t sat me in your way

That Christmas feeling will come to you and stay …If you’re open, it will come to you and stay.

The bartender saw the new smile on my face
Said laughingly, That newlywed glow will soon leave without a trace
I didn’t have the heart to tell him, but this Christmas it’s been fifteen years
Since I fell in love with you forever, ‘cause it’s the heart that hears

As I drive up to our home, with it’s simple light show
A feeling came over me and it began to snow
I could hear the kids joyfully screaming inside
And I thanked God that he helped me hang on for the ride.

We all feel low at times; it’s just that way 
But it you’re open to it, that Christmas feeling will come to you and stay
…If you’re open, it will come to you and stay.

Some have asked about how song turned out. Check for on itunes under my name Shawn Sackman. Thanks.

Santa Is A Yorkshire Man

To put an end to the myth that Santa lives in Lapland

Santa is a Yorkshire man everybody knows that
People just say he's from Lapland, cos he’s round and fat.
Well Yorkshire men can be the same they are not all dud
All year on the beer and whiskey, washed down with Yorkshire pud.

Santa is a Yorkshire man everybody in Yorkshire knows that
You say the Lapland Santa, glows warm and are red, and fat.
Well Yorkshire Santa’s have glowing bits, but they keep them out of sight
Except on Christmas Eve when their pants have got too tight.

Santa is a Yorkshire man so stop making such a fuss
A Santa who know what’s what, so you can call on us
If your chimney is too tight, Yorkshire Santa will let you know
He’ll leave your present’s elsewhere, and you will have to go.
To collect you gifts is your own fault if your chimney is too small
Don’t expect him to get up there, he doesn’t want to fall.

A spade is a spade wherever you go Santa will tell you that
If you want to get your presents early, try Ilkley moor barh t at.
They meet there on Christmas Eve to swap gifts and stories too
That’s why they all have glowing bits, I bet you would have too.
He doesn’t have time to mess about, you people should know that
Santa is a Yorkshire man, there’s no more to say that’s that.


Yorkshire folk are know for being down to earth and saying what they see, ie a spade is a spade and not an earth moving device.
 Ilky Moor Bar tat a famous Yorkshire Folk song where lovers  meet  and she chides him for not wearing a hat. The winds of the moor causing death and he will be eaten by worms and so on (google it)

A Miracle For You

I wish I could help you each and everyone.
You light up my life and the same I would 
like to do for you.
I don't like seeing you feeling so sad.
If I could find that one thing to make it all 
better I surely would do it.
Could I sit by your side when you feel the 
need to hide from it all?
I would wipe away your tears and try to 
chase away your fears.
I would hold your hand and whisper soothing 
words to you until you fall asleep.
I pray for you to be free from all your pain and 
sadness today...tomorrow...and everyday hereafter.
I wish for you to be able to enjoy everything life has
to offer.
Please know that you my family and friends each and 
everyone of you mean the world to me.
For Christmas a miracle to you I would give...if only I could !!!

Christmas Is Magical

Christmas is a magical time
a time for love and joy
where even in wars there is piece
between the men and women deployed

Children laugh with parents
around a green tree 
everyone is together
as it should always be

snow falls on the ground
leaving everything in a blanket of white
icicles hanging from roof tops
it's such a glorius sight

Christmas is a magical time
for every boy and girl
it's a time for great happiness
and joy throughout the world

The Perfect Christmas Gift

The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary,
He said that she would bear a son,
And call Him Jesus, the Son of David,
The Saviour, man, and Holy One.

(Chorus)
The perfect gift came down from heaven,
The Son of God born on the earth;
The Prince of Peace, the King of Jacob,
Became a babe of humble birth.

The shepherds kneeling, the angels singing,
Give praises to the infant Lord.
The Father's glory shines round about them;
The love of God that night outpoured.

(Chorus)

His beaming star stood above the manger,
It led the wise men from the East;
They fell and worshipped, and then presented
Their gifts to Jesus, King and Priest.

(Chorus)

Framed by Love

You asked me to make sure your husband didn’t drink that December day as I pushed your chair through glass-encased gardens. A friend in need you had always been, I could deny you nothing, but Paul lost it and left town when you died. Living just long enough to see your first grandchild born, it was a three-year battle before cancer put you in that wheelchair. Look at how lovingly Paul holds your hand here, standing by Chris whose smile lit our lives. Chris and I gave the eulogy together as you asked, but you knew that since Chris is with you now. Only weeks after your death did we learn of Chris’s cancer. Tell him I miss our travels as I embrace this photo with my heart’s frame of eternal love.
*For Sidney Lee Ann’s “Picture Frame” contest Dedicated to Jeanett, who saw her grandson born on Christmas before dying in January 2003. Our friend Chris died Christmas Day 2005. The photo makes me think how different life was when we spent all our free time together.

Christmas Morning

Christmas is that time of year
When friends and family gather near
The children giggle with delight
Anticipating Santa’s flight

Wondering if their list has been read
As they snuggle down in their warm bed
Excited about what tomorrow will bring
Trying to listen for the bells to ring

Then before you know it we open our eyes
Run down the stairs to see the surprise
“Wake up mom and dad look what’s here”
We jump and laugh and give a cheer

Santa came, Santa came look what he left
A doll, a bike, a big treasure chest
Our stockings are full of goodies too
We must have been good the whole year through

I can’t believe the things we got
Santa must really love us a lot
So always help your mom and dad
And work on being good, not bad

Santa knows what we do
When we’re happy or feeling blue
Always make sure and try your best and
Santa will take care of the rest

So stoke the fire add some wood
And remember who’s watching
You better be good!

Merry Christmas!!!

A Simple Southern Christmas

It's gonna be a simple southern Christmas here.
All I want from Santa is some egg nog, bourbon and beer.
I'm gonna wait on Santa Christmas Eve night,
and when he's not lookin' I just might,
steal his reindeer.
It's gonna be a simple southern Christmas here.
I'm sending out my Christmas cheer.
I'm gonna sit on my front porch swing and sing.
It will be a good thing to hear those jingle bells ring.
I thought I seen Santa on the backwoods bayou road,
but instead it was a big fat toad.
It'a a wonderful simple southern Christmas here.
Santa just brought me some egg nog, bourbon, and beer.
When he wasn't lookin' I stole his reindeer.
So now I can deliver my Christmas cheer.
But hurry, hurry, I'm in a rush,
got to give that reindeer a little push.
Got to go, got to go,
got to get home to fix my gumbo.
It is Christmas day,
and I'm in  a rush I must say.
It's gonna be a simple southern Christmas here.
Just add egg nog, bourbon and beer.
Mix it up with some Christmas cheer.
I'm ready for Christmas every year.

What is Christmas

A time of many lights to see,
Of tinsel, garland and wreath's so fair.
Of hundreds of bulbs upon a tree,
With twinkling lights and angel hair.

A festive time with thoughts of Santa Clause,
Of jingle bells, and distant sounds of sleighs.
From the daily rush we're in, we pause,
Remembering once more our childhood days.

The time for eggnog and a cozy fire,
Have the Christmas story and often games.
Of candy canes, children never seem to tire,
While watching a Yule log's flickering flame.  

A time for the hanging of  mistletoe,
The singing of carols and children at play.
A time of merriment and places to go.
To many, these are this holiday.

For early mall arrival and long lines,
To retrieve that last gift before we rest.
Parking lot disagreements, fights and fines,
We're seeing free enterprise at its best.

Of bells and kettles in the mall,
With scent's of baked goods and pines.
While searching for gifts for one and all,
We encounter rudeness and sold out signs.

Christmas can be like this, it's true,
But lest we forget this time of year.
Let's look at things from a different view,
As the birthdate of the Christ child dear.

In a twinkling stars five points I see,
Two arms, two legs, a head.
I see the cross in a Christmas tree,
Where a Savior hung and bled.

In the manger scene I'm taken back,
To the place the Christ child lay.
I view the gifts in Santa's sack,
As those the wise men brought that day.

In a simple wreath of vines I see,
A crown of thorns that Jesus wore.
Of a scourging he once took for me,
And of man's sin that at Calvary he bore.

Within each candle seen glowing bright,
One thought comes to my mind.
That in my world He's still my light,
God's precious gift to all mankind.

In a candy cane of white and red,
I see His body without sin.
The crimson, being where he bled,
So that man might be born again.


Then looking into a yule log set aflame,
Unable to imagine the torment one will feel.
If living life as though Jesus never came,
Only to discover at death, that Hell is real.

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

    CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
I keep saying Merry Christmas,
Xmas just don't mean it.
Christmas without Santa Claus
is alright by me.
----chorus
Part of your Christmas lights
are Jesus, and you and me.
He's in every Merry Christmas
You'll ever hear from me.


I keep saying Merry Christmas,
Xmas has no feeling.
I keep thinking Santa Claus
Should come another night.
---------chorus
Part of your Christmas lights
are Jesus, and you and me.
He's in every Merry Christmas
You'll ever hear from me.

I'll keem wishing Merry Christmas.
I'll keep hoping Merry Christmas.
I'll keep saying Merry Christmas.

Christmas In July

It is no wonder why
Oh happy day in July
When I sing of peace and love and joy
I of’t recall the birth of Mary’s baby boy
Born that first Christmas day when angels did proclaim
“O Earth, to you, a savior born; Jesus is His name.”

Oh joyous day in July
When yards turn brown and get too dry
I read again the story Bibles tell
Not like the Christmas advertisers sell
I know a time angels to shepherds came
And sang, “…a savior born; Jesus is His name.”

Oh festive July day
When I take time to pray
I am glad the Christmas spirit still remains
As I lift my voice with sweet angelic refrains
Christmas came years ago from heaven above
God’s gift given; precious Jesus, wrapped with love.

Like Christmas in July - Utah's Pioneer Day

A tribute on the twenty-fourth is paid
To pioneers who came here one July,
Then stopped in Salt Lake’s valley, where they stayed.
A tribute on the twenty-fourth is paid
To those who died; to those who lived and made
A Zion out of land both hot and dry.
A tribute on the twenty-fourth is paid
To pioneers who came here one July.

Like Christmas in July, this holiday,
Is celebrated with a huge parade.
The businesses are closed; the people play.
Like Christmas in July, this holiday
Is time for family, and good folks pray
That thoughts of those who sacrificed won’t fade.
Like Christmas in July, this holiday,
Is celebrated with a  huge parade!

12 days of kiss-mas

On the 12th day of kiss-mass my true love sent to me
12 dirty undies
11 socks a stinking
10 shoes a humming
9 shirts for pressing
8 trousers 
7 days of take-out boxes
6 flagons of beer
5 D V D's
4 mischievous children
3 dozen wine bottles
2 ex partners
and an engagement ring under the tree

Christmas Blues

Christmas was never about God for me,
it was memories of warm laughter, rosy cheeked joys   	
for if God was the point, whose God would it be?

Xmas was about giving to your protégées.	
Long, long, lost wishes of long broken boy toys,
Christmas was never about God for me.

Winter’s height held the beauty of childhood set free
of hunting and wrapping and folks overjoyed	
for if it was God, we had three, whose God would it be?

This December wonder now past, gone you see,
gone with the cold, I’d not wish despair on July, this killjoy
for Christmas was never about God for me.

Once a year Xmas marks a sad crying spree
with nobody wanting to be home and little joy employed
for if God were the point, my son would be with me?

Perhaps, with grandchildren there be a jubilee
and this hollowed out husk of me will be destroyed
And Christmas will be about God for me
for it could be so, whose god will it be?

L, O, V, E,

Do you remember this?

Perfect of all imperfections

Clueless of all clues 

Ideas of all all ideologies

Even, depth of all depths

Just thinking...what more can be said

If you are not a partaker of the feelings

Alright! Hold it right there it says...

Did you forget to say this?

Its the thoughts of all thinkers

The warmth of a real heart and

The story behind  all imaginations 

Better still,the heart that speaks solemn

The very night of every night 

The memorable ones i must say...

Its tenderness so soft, so mild it is

Expressions are real you can not fake it

I remember now dave

So time less,it has no boundaries

Un ending its nature has become

I seem to have found the right word 

Could it be called love? Gentle in its kindness 

Yes! yes! yes!!! It sounds like it 

love of varsal entorganism

L.O.V E.

For You And Me

It  was  for you and me ,
That Jesus left His throne,
Bore the scourge and agony,
Shivered His flesh and bone,

It was for you and me,
He took the awry tour,
Towards the dreaded Calvary,
Summed His tortured  hours,

It was for you and me,
That Jesus bore the cross,
Paid the greatest penalty,
That death supposed be ours,

It was for you and me,
He wailed the gloomiest cry,
It was for you and me,
Jesus was nailed to die,

Oh, that you and I may see,
Our wickedness beyond measure,
Jesus to set us free,
In our stead bore the torture,

His love mysterious great,
Knocks  the door of all men's heart,
His mighty power recreates,
Renews our lives whole to restart,

It was for you and me,
When on the third day death sufficed,
The savior left His grave,
Victorious he arised,

He rose back to His throne,
Sitting by His Father's side,
Prepare! He's coming soon,
Today is to decide,

Christmas in the Middle East

Said the soldier to his wife at home,
do you see what I see?

Way up in the sky, my dear,
do you see what I see?

A rocket, a rocket, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite...
With a tail as big as a kite... 

Said the soldier to his only son,
do you hear what I hear?

Ringing through the sky, my boy,
do you hear what I hear?

A bomb, a bomb, high above the sands
With a voice as big as the sea...
With a voice as big as the sea... 

Said the soldier to his president,
do you know what I know? 

So safe at home, Mr. President,
do you know what I know? 

Men, men are dying in the sand
Let us bring them home
Let us bring them home 

Said the Poet to the people everywhere,
listen to what I say! 

Pray for peace, people everywhere,
listen to what I say!

Our nation, our nation, rising to its feet
Its strength will bring us peace today
Its strength will bring us peace today.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------                             ----------------------------------While Christmas approaches nearer to our hearts and homes, it is important to remember our brothers over-seas. Everyday, people are dying in wars that should have ended long before they begun, and now, in a time as great as any, we must remember that peace is not impossible, but rather grows in the hearts of all whom maintain it.

This Christmas, let us do our part.

Emmanuel

A royal King was born, Emmanuel --
Down by His manger men and angels fell;
But he did not within a palace dwell,
Instead he came to save our souls from hell.

The years had passed and death was coming nigh;
He bore His cross while Mary softly cried:
What pain to watch her Son so slowly die,
While wishing Him a tearful last goodbye.

A mother's tears no words could ever tell --
As one by one at Jesus' feet they fell:
What pain to watch her Son so slowly die,
While wishing Him a tearful last goodbye.

I'll Keep Saying Merry Christmas

    I'LL KEEP SAYING MERRY CHRISTMAS  

I keep saying Merry Christmas,
but you never notice.
I keep asking Santa Claus
to bring you lots of toys.
Part of your Christmas tree
is lit up by love from me.
I'm in every Christmas,
but you just don't ever see.

I keep saying Merry Christmas,
but you just won't hear me.
I keep thinking Santa Claus
might be mad at me.
Part of your Christmas light
is shining with love from me.
I'll light up your Christmas tree,
until there's no more light in me.

I'll keep saying Merry Christmas.
I'll keep wishing Merry Christmas.
I'll keep hoping Merry Christmas.
I'll keep saying Merry Christmas.

 UNSUPPORTED CODE 
I'll keep saying Merry Christmas.
I'll keep saying Merry Christmas.

A Midsummer Night's Christmas Delight

Big brothers, big sisters, many of whom
Had never heard the sound of children's laughter
Opening presents on Christmas morn
Planned a summer outing to a local theater

On July First, for children from ages six to thirteen
The curtain rose on a Midsummer Night's Dream
Pip, true to character, eyes shone with wonder
And nary a child's dream could be put asunder
As fairies danced astage like sugarplums through toddlers' heads

Especially the youngest, these children of single parents
Never exposed to Shakespearean delights in an enchanted forest
Like Santas we felt bestowing culture to a captivated audience
Hoping this Christmas in July would grant them a sense of permanence

All children deserve to feel such love and faith in visions magical
With love among forest sprites and poetry of dreams fantastical
Stopping for ice cream floats on the evening ride home
A nine year old with a fairy wand turned her friend into a gnome

And for a brief time these blessed children forgot their broken homes
The fathers or mothers who'd left them behind made no curtain calls
For children inspired by Shakespeare's fire could light up any hall
So they dashed away, pranced away, danced away all

As the bus ride came to a halt
The cultural presence that sprang from their hearts
Would outlive any gifts from Santa Clause
It was more than a deed done for a good cause

For one evening at least they had something more
Than children who lived in mansions
They'd shared beauty and grace
Gifts beyond most youngsters' comprehension

From strangers who did not through chimneys drop
Nor offer explanation
Great tidings of cheer that filled children's ears
Brought such jubilation

Big brothers and sisters needed no whiskers to beam with joy overcome
And yet as we disembarked and sent each sleepy child home
A familiar train, deer and sleigh, seemed to streak across the moon
The true spirit of Christmas on July First had made its presence known

celsius

Fallen snow will remind of me/ it is snowing ... 
Slowly as in the dream/ 
Boy word-beads/ with signs on his spine/ 
He kisses fine/ 
Your eyelids /

And it snows ... It snows /so slow/
It does/ and you're thinking of me/ 
'Coz it's warm/ it's better to stay in warmth/ 
Waiting for summer dim/ 
It is snowing/ slowly like in the dream/ 
Flakes/ go round/ playing the music theme/ 
You've been looking for rescue/ 
You searched in wine/ 
But it's in me/ 
all the rescues are mine/ 
It is snowing/ the snow is fluffy and white/ 
If you see darkness/ I'm deaf and blind/ 
there's the cast of time/ on the arm/ 
But I discern the light/ 
Dreams/ upon your eyelids tips/ 
Prepare you for winter drowse/ 
And it snows/ 

Fallen snow/ will remind of spring /
it will crumble and crackle in vain/ 
It will snow / fluffy /white/ and slow/ 
And you'll become whole/

The New Santa Claus

I'm locking up my house, because it's that time for thieves.
I need to Santa proof my place, because It's Christmas Eve.
If he does get in, I'm going to run and hide.
I left out some milk and cookies with rat pellets inside.
While he's eating the cookies and he's starting to sweat.
The reindeer will be caught in security nets.
"I'm sorry boys and girls, but Santa has to retire!"
I'm going to tie him to the tree and set poor Santa on fire.
Then I'm going to take the toys and keep them all to myself.
Even though I've been bad, no coals will be on my shelf.
Merry Christmas to me! This year is going to be grand!
I'll get whatever I want, if Christmas goes as I planned!
Wearing Santa Claus' suite I'll get in houses without keys.
In twenty seven minutes I'll rob twenty seven trees!
So all you little brats, don't you cry and sob.
With the recession and depression, I just needed a job.
A lot of things are going to change, but you all shouldn't be sad.
Now that I'm the new Santa, It doesn't matter who's bad.
I'll use the elves as my slaves and the toys will still come.
Instead of a Nintendo, you'll get a gallon of rum.
Toy guns are for babies, how about the real thing?
A candy neckless won't impress, I'll make sure that it's bling.
You said you wanted a pony? How about a deer that can fly?
No more lousy presents, no more socks, or bad ties.
I'll change... 
Wait... Wait a minute... Was that all just a dream?
Why do I only have coal under the tree and in my stocking?
Santa please come back! I promse I'll be better next year!
I promise I'll be good and I'll spred more Christmas cheer!

Did Santa Claus come back? Did he come like I thought he should?
No Santa didn't, but next year I'll be good!
I'll only do what is right, aleast to his satisfaction.
So he comes back to my house, and my plan goes back into action!

A Gray Christmas

The little boy sits by the christmas tree 
Full of light and color
Trying to figure out what all the colors are
He puts his little hands on the ornaments
Trying to see what they are
Feeling them
He steps back and falls over a present
He feels around the box trying to open it
Only seeing alittle 

Mean while on the phone..

his mom is talking to the doctor

"do you think he will be able to see by christmas?" she says
The doctor replies "theres no guarentees, he is 67 % blind, when we did the test with him, he described the color blue as a dark black, and a yellow as a light gray, your son only sees in black and white and im not sure if we can fix that. but we will do our best"

A breathe escapes from her lips as she turns and looks at her son
The doctor explains "his surgery is set for Dec. 7th. be here around 8 am and we will see what we can do, im trully sorry"
He hangs up.

Back in the living room

The boy stands up and walks over to his mom
"mom, have you seen the christmas lights?" he says

She replies "yes sweety i have."

He hugs her leg and says "are they black and white?"

She answers "no sweety" she points to a light bulb on the tree

"this one is blue" she smiles

He grabs the light bulb and repeats "this one is blue" and giggles

She lays him down in his bed as he quickly falls asleep

She sits down on the chair and thinks
"to me. because my son cannot see the beautiful lights and feel the joys of christmas, everything is gray for me. nothing will fill my empty heart"


There are no smiles, when everything is gray, when you cant see the colors of a bright day

My Perfect Christmas Gift

On christmas eve I wait
sitting by the door
wishing he would come
but not hoping any more

In my heart I know he won't
so I don't know why I wait
I think that I should go to bed
it's getting awfully late

I wake up in the morning 
to a damp pillow near my head
then I hear a voice down stairs 
and I sit up in my bed

I run down the hall 
to the living room to see
the greatest gift that anyone
could ever give to me

my father's sitting on the couch
it's then I finally know
that god listend to my prayers
all that's missing is the bow.

Snow From God

snow falls lightly 
from the sky up above
soflty falling down
like the feather of a dove

each snow flake is different
like each one of us
falling to the ground
like snow often does

it's steals away breath
this brilliant thing
so pure and refreshing
like the songs angels sing

they sing for remembrance
of God and his sun
throwing down these white tokens
to say winter has begun

white is for birth
the birth of baby christ
white is for hope
that things are alright

each flake that falls 
from the sky up above
is a gift from God
telling us we are loved

The Concentration Song

The Concentration Song


Christmas contest, change a song
think I'll try, I can't go wrong.

Got two lines but it won't last
concentration's going fast.

Barking dogs, phone rings and rings.
If it don't stop I'll break that thing.

Gee, oh wouldn't it be great
if I could only concentrate!

LETTER TO SANTA

He sat up late one night and wrote,
His heartfelt Christmas dream.
Dear Santa, I wont ask for much.
His eyes began to gleam.
I've got a baseball and a glove,
A rocket and launching pad.
I've got so many things to share,
But, I haven't got my dad.
He left us not to long ago.
He didn't even pack.
He went to heaven, Mommy said.
But, now I want him back.

I miss my Daddy.
I miss the way he holds my hand.
I miss my Daddy.
And I don't really understand.
I miss my Daddy.
I know he must be missing me.
If you can find him, Santa.
Please, put him underneath the Christmas tree.

He always hugs me when he leaves.
He always says goodbye.
I hope he wasn't mad at me.
It makes me want to cry.
It's not the same without him here.
Why did he go away?
My Mommy's eyes are always red.
She won't come out and play.
Dear Santa, I just want one thing.
The love that I once had.
I'll give you everything I own,
If you'll bring me my Dad.

I miss my Daddy.
I miss the way he holds my hand.
I miss my Daddy.
And I don't really understand.
I miss my Daddy.
I know he must be missing me.
If you can find him, Santa.
Please, put him underneath the Christmas tree.

I hope it's not to much to ask.
I hope I've made it clear.
My Mommy misses Daddy, too,
And wishes he were here.
If you can't bring him back to me,
I hope I'll understand.
You've always done your best, I know,
To make my Christmas grand.

I miss my Daddy.
I miss him every single day.
I miss my Daddy.
OH Santa. Why'd he go away?
I miss my Daddy.
I know he must be missing me.
Please! Find my Daddy, Santa.
And put him underneath the Christmas tree.

Merry Christmas MOM

Merry Christmas to my most favorite mom
or should I say "Santa Claus"
I will never know how you pull it off
without one whimper or yawn
But I guess it is the klonopin that keeps you "real" calm

year after year
Fall after fall
You're out there
raking leafs
until you look like a old rag doll
and just when you think
you're about to bawl
and lost all your zeal
you step on you're soap box
and simply squeal
"Jesus take the wheel"

okay,
Enough of the jokes
because without you
my ass would be broke
and i would be worse off
than when I ate that
hot dog too fast and chocked

So mom,
all all I've trying to say from the start
Is merry Christmas and I love you,
From the bottom of my heart

2012 Christmas Wish

That each child would be more aware,
What Christmas is truly about.
It shouldn't be just bows and ribbons,
On gifts that make them shout.

It shouldn't be a story of Santa,
Decked out in most every strip mall.
That enters down the chimney,
Bringing presents to one and all.

It shouldn't merely be a gathering,
Randomly seated on Christmas morn,
Exchanging gifts and idly chatting,
Thinking little that Jesus was born.

It isn't just about a manger scene,
An event that brought Heavens loss.
While we celebrate Jesus' virgin birth,
It's always been about the cross. 
            Jesus Loves You

More than weather, can be frightful or Unseasonal Christmas

Used to be the weather was frightful
People covered themselves from head to toe
Now, despite the fact it’s Christmas season
I see more sand, than I see snow
The temperatures keep on elevating
To the moon, they just seem to rise
Oh, where is the Christmas of yesterday
The rosy cheeks, windows fogged with ice

It’s just too warm now for Christmas
Too hot to shop, too hot to run around
Santa’s working at the pole in a speedo
That’s nothing, we wanna see come to town

Frosty, it seems we’re not gonna see him
Heat miser, now, has gotten his day
Can’t ole Jack Frost do something about this
And chase the warm weather away
No need to chop wood set for burning
The heated air replaces that in the hearth
I hope it gets cold and very soon, too
Because Christmas puts warmth in everyone’s heart

It’s just too warm now for Christmas
Too hot to shop, too hot to run around
Santa’s working at the pole in a speedo
That’s nothing, we wanna see come to town

Oh, when Christmas day finally gets here
Right now, I’ll tell ya, all I wanna see
Are people with scarves and gloves on their hands
And snow bringing life to all barren trees
I want the temps to chill me right to the bone
That’s when I’ll know it’s Christmas time
Who wants to look up and see a sleigh
With a fat man in a speedo, flying around

It’s just too warm now for Christmas
Too hot to shop, too hot to run around
Santa’s working at the pole in a speedo
That’s nothing, we wanna see come to town

The Lonely Grinch's Carol

Decorated tree with lights and bells
Standing free from walls and shelves

Blissful youth keep warbling chants
Wrathful me grow scalding hands

My gnashing teeth and pounding heart
My crashing joy their humming part

A youngster sits on Santa’s lap
Her buoyant wish wreck my nap

Fathers and mothers at home with sons
Assembling round the tree with songs

Carols and hymns pleasant in ear
I hate to sing but love to hear

A lonely Grinch I break in tear
To see them sing and dance in cheer

Merry Christmas not hard to hear
I bow and say Happy New Year

Upon this Christmas Day

He sleeps there in a stable
The babe born to the world
Both mother, father watch with care

Though swaddled in a cloth
He is born, yet, to be king
With but just rags for Him to wear

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

For within the early morning
Angels brought the sky a voice
Calling forth those who wish to hear

Along then, came all others
Knowing truth within their hearts
That all now have nothing to fear

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

Go forth and tell all others
Who had no chance to hear
The news of hope and of the joy

Let them know the Gift of God
That comes to save us all
His son sent as this little boy

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

Southern Christmas Ya'll(USA)

Sleighbells ring are you kidding?
In the lane sun is shining
It's a beautiful sight, I'm coatless tonight.
Walking in the southern Christmas air.

In the meadow we will build a manger.
In the south they aren't a stranger.
We're happy tonight when we see the sights.
Walking in the southern Christmas air.

On the highways you'll see a hay sculpture
We pay to take a decorative light tour
We're happy tonight when we see the lights.
Walking in the southern Christmas air.

Walking in the southern Christmas (warm) air.

A Florida Christmas Jingle

Written to the tune of "Jingle Bells"

Here in Florida,
We don't get any snow,
We don't have sleighs to ride,
But we do have mistletoe!

For a little Christmas jaunt,
We'll drive 'round after dark,
To view the Christmas-lighted homes,
And displays at the park.

Ho! Ho! Ho! 
He! He! He!
Christmas time is here.
Let's deck the halls and shop the malls,
To spread some Christmas cheer!
Ho! Ho! Ho!
He! He! He!
Christmas time is here.
Let's deck the halls and shop the malls,
To spread some Christmas cheer!

Driving through the rain,
In a souped up Cheverolet,
Traffic's moving slow,
But hey, that's A-okay.

Christmas carols blare,
From the Chevy's radio,
We're having fun singing along,
Making words up as we go!

Ho! Ho! Ho!
He! He! He!
Christmas time is here.
Let's deck the halls and shop the malls,
To spread some Christmas cheer!
Ho! Ho! Ho!
He! He! He!
Christmas time is here.
Let's deck the halls and shop the malls,
To spread some Christmas cheer!

12/4/2011 for Debbie Guzzi's Deja vu Christmas contest.

Trying to think of a Christmas song or story that I could modernize, Jingle Bells popped in my head.  I live in Florida and it doesn't (usually) snow here, so tried to come up with a snowless version of the song.

Mrs Clauses Christmas Song

Mrs. Clause's Christmas Song

Mom and dad went out shopping for a Christmas tree
Dad was going to slow when Santa passed by him
Rudolf didn't see him quick enough, he knocked dad into misery
Mom just walked away with an ugly ache on her shin
As for Santa he was still singing Christmas wishes so happily
Mrs. Clause was singing as an angel, Santa will you sing an extra hymn
Mrs. Clause was singing as an angel, Santa will you sing an extra hymn.

For little Johnny needs a new bike under the tree
For Santa you hit too many dads for them to feelin' mighty grim
Just remember little Johnny needs his daddy to be happy
No more riding the reindeers to fast on Christmas Eve
Santa don't drive to fast with the reindeers
Cause Mrs. Clause needs you around for many more Christmas Eve’s.
Cause Mrs. Clause needs you around for many more Christmas Eve’s.

Written: Nov. 20, 2014

A Christmas Dream

Over the blasts of mortar shells,
He heard the sound of jingle bells;
And when he closed his tired eyes,
He got a Christmas Day surprise.

Snow was fall’n and his boy was call’n:
“Daddy, can we go down now?
I think it’s clear, Santa’s been here
And Daddy got home some how.
We are a family, Daddy, Mom and me
On this Christmas Day;
I’m with you, my wish came true,
The one to Baby Jesus I did pray.”

From across the world, so far away,
In a foreign land on Christmas Day;
Sleeping with his fatigues still on,
His boy’s voice was a Christmas song.

Snow was fall’n and his boy was call’n:
“Daddy, can we go down now?
I think it’s clear, Santa’s been here
And Daddy got home some how.
We are a family, Daddy, Mom and me
On this Christmas Day;
I’m with you, my wish came true,
The one to Baby Jesus I did pray.”

Please remember our service heroes,
Scattered throughout the world,
As we celebrate with our families,
The good will they hope to build.

He woke up to a flash of light,
And screams resounding in the night;
He charged forward to help his peers;
With his son’s voice ringing in his ears.

Snow was fall’n and his boy was call’n:
“Daddy, can we go down now?
I think it’s clear, Santa’s been here
And Daddy got home some how.
We are a family, Daddy, Mom and me
On this Christmas Day;
I’m with you, my wish came true,
The one to Baby Jesus I did pray.”

In a land of Christmas dreams

There’s a special place not to far - you know
A special place where we all can go
A place where dreams run as free as our mind
A place where we stop the happiest of times
To live our fullest at being who we are
To share and listen in each others beliefs of who we are.
To be happy being who we are

In a land of Christmas dreams
Is a special place for you and me
Somewhere to go and always see
How truly life can really be

Listen to our loved ones how we want to be heard
Understanding completely with out stating a word

Where giving is a pleasure with a hug and a kiss
Open minds and hearts and feelings as this

In a land of Christmas dreams

In a land of Christmas dreams
Is a special place for you and me
Somewhere to go and always see
How truly life can really be

For this beauty of freedom and dreams
Every night stares at you in your sleep
This giving and caring is special indeed
This giving and caring is shared between you and me

Expressing our gracious love for our friends and family
Always supporting our love and devotion
Being there for each other through times thick and thin
Always to return strong in message of the truth within

In this land of Christmas dreams
All of it’s beauty of freedom sings
Every night sings to you in your sleep
This giving and caring is special indeed
For this giving and caring of Christmas dreams
Is all behind the spirit of you and of me.

Christmas in July!

The family is all gathered, Just like Christmas Day; All lined up in bikini’s, Soaking up the ray’s; The beach front sure is hot, In the middle of July; On the deck catchin’ catfish, So we can have a catfish fry; Playin’ beach volleyball, In Daisy Duke shorts; With friends and family, Of all different sorts; At night there’s a bonfire, We’re all makin’ S’mores; It’s so nice to spend, Our Christmas outdoors; It’s a gift to be here together, And that’s what Christmas brings; It doesn’t matter the time of year, From winter to summer to spring; And I sure love when Christmas, Comes around in July; All those warm and fuzzy feelings, When the temperature is high!

12 Days Penning

For twelve days last Christmas, 
my true love penned for me:
Twelve odes quatrain-ing
Eleven haiku chain-ing
Ten lines dizain-ing

Nine tongues a'twisting
Eight rhymes a'riddling 
Seven trifalls falling
Six tyburns burning 
Five etherees

Four appalling puns
Three French songs
Two terza rima
And a pantoum
as a parody.

I never in my life
will read another poem.
And as for my "true love"
I never got to know him.

12 days of xmas

Just 12 days to Christmas
So much hope in the air
And a chilling in my tummy
With 11 days to go
My B.P is now high
And where do I get some money
Now going to the bank
To check out what is left
Only just to leave there empty
Now where are my guys?
I cannot understand
8 are just nowhere
7 went to marriage
6 are now studying
5 raaan awayyyy
4 hanged my calls
3 washing clothes
2 went to club
And 1 told me he’s not free

one winters night

the vivid channels of peace removes
the bitterness that would't survive 
life with out peace on earth but on 
one winter's night we get to smile
 
and forgive just for a little while
that one winter's night we settle for love
this last passionate winter's might
that makes the only wish for the baby tonight

is the only being who's words matter 
shall bring the most joy sad with a latter
as the light shined so bright just right
while we dance in heaven thee three kings

as joy to the world brings kisses and hugs
for the time of giving felt more than one day
as the children laugh the muppet's sag
as the beautiful ballot of bells song just so

while the cold breeze warms you in a blanket
an imagination of closeness this winter's night
the vivid day of peace on earth you can say
for christ was born on chrostmas day

Christmas Through July

Christmas Through July

Christmas is such a grand time of the year!
People are happy joy shows everywhere. 
Gifts of love arrive from both far and near.
Scents of the season permeate the night air.

Remembering the Savior's love so grand.
Families hang lights, such a beautiful sight.
Decorations displayed across the land.
Many surprises are shared Christmas night.
 
January came but the tree remained.
Celebrating my child's birthday the same.
Just like Jesus, her happiness sustained.
Each year's tradition when her birthday came.

Year round loving was about to be taught.
Decorations of hearts and shiny red balls
Replaced the angels that Christmas had brought.
February feelings Christ's love did recall.

In March, the tree was adorned with shamrocks.
Paper-mâché nuggets sparkled in gold.
Children and laughter sang around the clock.
Smiles, like at Christmas, were great to behold.

April was spring pretty flowers were hung.
It took a lot of work, but was it still fun.
We at play felt pure joy, free and young.
One fun filled plan to teach love, begun.

May decorations, the best, I recall.
Mother's day cards, painted hands, paper plates.
A trip to the attic was fun for all.
While cherishing the loves childhood creates.

Christmas in June on a new marriage day
Downstairs jam-packed squeezed in each wedding guest.
Rained out at the park, they saw our display.
Christmas year round knew love at its best.

July 30th past, the flags were still hung.
Patriotism shown, honored with rare style.
Christmas in July with a new day sung.
We took down the tree cherishing each smile.

AUTHOR'S NOTE:  This lyric poem written in quatrain format is a true story that expresses my feelings about 
showing love year round…not just in December.

TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS: A SANTA THAT WASN'T ME

On Christmas Eve I was trapped in snow,
my house resembled the ingloo of an Eskimo: 
presents in silver boxes just laid there,
twelve Power Rangers, 
eleven hair-curlers, 
ten brown teddy bears,
nine Purina cans, 
eight diet biscuit bags,
seven pairs of gloves,
six votive candles for my favorite Saint Anthonyyyy,
five boxes of crayons,
four make-up kits,
three large chocolate bars,
two pairs of wool gloves,  
and one beard trimmer for a Santa that wasn't meeee!

Jacob got run over by a reindeer

Jacob got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from Bella's house Christmas Eve.
You can say there's no such thing as vampires,
But as for me and Edward, we believe.

He woke up too late that morning
In his home town of La Push,
Then he headed over to Bella's
Where Edward decided to kick his tush

It was a not a tragic story
It was meant for him to go
Bella's better off without him
Because his evil ways were far too low

Jacob got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from Bella's house Christmas Eve.
You can say there's no such thing as vampires,
But as for me and Edward, we believe.

They were all opening presents
No one noticed he was gone
They thought the smell was rather pleasant
Better than it was, since Breaking Dawn.

Bella realized he was missing
At the scene of the attack
luckily the death was painless
Because Edward would have made him tomorrow's snack


Jacob got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from Bella's house Christmas Eve.
You can say there's no such thing as vampires,
But as for me and Edward, we believe.

Jacob got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from Bella's house Christmas Eve.
Luckily there are such things as vampires,
Because if not we all would surely grieve

Christmas without you

You told me once that you loved me
and that you would always be true
Just like a fool I believed you,
I changed my life to suit you.
Then just before Christmas you left me,
left me right here on my own
I'm moving on now you're nothing to me
I'm going to make it alone.

You're out of my life now forever
You're part of my past and I'm glad.
I don't think you ever loved me at all
now it's your turn to be sad
So I'm spending Christmas without you
I don't care where you might be
I'm making plans and they don't include you
Christmas means nothing to me.

I'll find someone who adores me
Someone who'll always be true.
It won't be easy I know for a fact
I'm still addicted to you
But I'm moving on now without you
somehow I'm going to be strong
I hope you're miserable out there alone
Coz that is just where you belong.

All I am wanting for Christmas 
is for you to be nowhere around
Family and friends will be welcome to call
to share in the freedom I've found
But I hope that you keep your distance
I don't want to see you round here
Happily I will be waving good-bye
Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.



(I have a melody for this and it doubles up as a song - problem is that I can't sing and don't know what to do with it!!)

Christmas Jubilee

Christmas was always about God for me,
It was memories, inner fullness…Begotten-Boy.
Because God was the point, God’s Son died bravely.

Christmas was about giving pure heart’s bouquet.
Finding dreams, wishes, and bringing home joy,
Christmas was always about God for me.

Father’s gift held the secret of wisdom set free
Of hoping and caring and loving enjoyed.
It is about God, Calvary, and forgiveness, you see.

When December wonder is past, does Christ flee?
Flee from the soul, leaving one on self to rely, lost envoy -
Truth.  Christmas was always about God for me.

Once a year Christmas marks God’s gift sent for me.
By faithfully gluing my lost self to Jesus, I found joy.
Because God sacrificed His Son, I am set free.

I know that in heaven there was great jubilee.
When this hollowed out husk of me, by sin destroyed
Found Christmas to be about God and me.
I know it is so; my faith sets me free.

I'd Rather Remember Christmas In July

I’d Rather Remember Christmas In July

Because we cannot rely that 
you’ll be alive beyond July, 
this year let’s have Christmas 
in Hawaii and in the month of July.

What a high that will be to scuba 
with Santa and ride waves
that seem  a mile wide.

Let’s kiss under the mistletoe,
Not in the snow drinking a cup of Joe,
But on the Hawaiian pier watching the undertow
Wearing our bikinis, swim trunks and flip flops,
Instead of our worn out matching house robes.

This year instead of presents,
Let’s give each other flowered leighs,
 And besides watching for Santa’s sleigh,
We’ll scout for him hanging ten on a huge wave.

Usually a yuletide carol is sweet in December,
But won’t it be bitter sweet 
when we look back and remember
Don Ho strumming his Hawaiian 
Christmas songs under a beach cabana
Where everyone’s legs are long, tan and limber?

It’s spending Christmas with you  
in Hawaii in July that I would rather remember 
When you’re gone in December.

Santa The Fat-Bellied Stranger

This is a poem I wrote for the Crazy Christmas Carol member contest.
It is in reference to Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. Hope you have some laughs!



Santa The Fat-Bellied Stranger


You know Batman and Robin
and Shakespeare and Poe
Oprah and Elvis
And Monet and Van Gogh
But do you recall
The most famous person of all?

Santa the fat-bellied stranger
(stranger)
Had a tummy full of ho's
(like Pavarotti)
And if he ever tried to
(tried to)
Couldn't even see his toes
(like a horse)
Now that he's getting older
(older)
With impotence and bum knees
(like McCain)
They never let poor Santa
(santa)
Savour all his common glees
(like Mrs. Claus)

Then one lonely Christmas Eve
Blue pill down the hatch
(please oh please)
Oh meds to my wife's delight
Won't you guide my libido tonight
Mrs. Claus from that day forward
(forward)
Always shouted out with glee
(have mercy)
"Santa you fat-bellied stranger
(stranger)
You'll go down in history!"
(like Casanova)

fantasy

It annoys me
Thinking
Crying
I hate you
I don't like that gift
Take it back
You know what he wants
But you don't know I i want
You spend all your money on him
And spend only ten bucks on me
I gave up on Christmas
Because Santa wasn't real
We look up to him like a god
And that I don't accept
I don't believe in religion
Or in creations of Disney
I do not believe that Santa will show up
I don't believe god will show up
All these stories told by mankind
Are fake.
That's the end of Christmas
How about we live in real life
Instead of living in a fantasy

Christmas in a Small Town

It's that time of year
Where everyone will gather in the street
For good tidings and cheer
And for peace on Earth as well

It's a Christmas here in my hometown
The town has picked out the tree
And the kids all wonder
If Santa Clause can really see

If they've been naughty or nice
So before they go off to bed
They say their prayers
And then dream sweet dreams in their heads

The kids will all play in the snow
While all the adults will sit around
And drink nice hot cocoa
And talk about if they can afford all the presents

Then on Christmas Day
After all the families are finished opening their presents
They all find their way
To the town square

And we all sing Christmas carols
Until the night comes
And until all the barrels
Of cider are completely gone

Evergreen fields

Where Christmas lives
Where dreams roam free
Where presents sit below each tree

For evergreen fields for you and me
Evergreen fields come true to dream
No more poor, and no more sad
Evergreen fields make us happy and glad

We run through the forest of o so tall trees
Smelling the scent of evergreen trees
Believe in the spirit for one and today
Believe in the evergreen fields where we lay

Snow angels on the ground
Love and happiness all around
Peace, harmony build our town
Knowing good spirits are truthful and bound

Evergreen fields for you and me
Evergreen fields for Christmas dreams
May everyday be your Christmas dream
May every Christmas dream
Be in for-evergreen

alight Christmas

I'm dreaming of a well lit Christmas 
just like the ones that used to glow 
for a price of admission, a well-lit apparition
a rainbow-colored gel for Christmas show

I'm dreaming of a lighted Christmas 
photons careening with bright flow
'lectric magicians emit eye-candy emissions
from exclusive condos down to 'long skid row

I'm dreaming of a well lit Christmas 
a mega-watt extravaganza blazing bright
so that all the Christmas lights invite
a shareholders annual dividend delight

CHRISTMAS ON CHAMPS ELYSEES Monsieur L'Vampyre

........CHRISTMAS ON CHAMPS ELYSEES
This night of mass, I still recall
the thing we had--dare I suggest,
if it was love, how we did fall?
For just a while, our lives were blessed
........Now Christmas on Champs Elysees
.........is not the same, in any way.

The lights reflecting on the Seine
have lost a little of their glow
I still walk there, but only when
there's no one with me I should know;
........and never since have I gone to
.........that small cafe, where I met you.

'twould be too much for me to bear
I'd have to face reality
accepting you would not be there
and put to rest your memory
......but now each Christmas I can feel
......the warmth of you, it's almost real.

And so this night, so warm and mild
I'll not forget the love of you
but celebrate the Jesus child
the way we used to do.
......and light a Candle Christmas Eve
.......though you have died, I still believe.

Happy Christmas!

(The Russia celebrates Christmas 7 January.)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Today the evening sky is too dark,

And no stars can be seen in the night!

Maybe it is because the snow is flying, turning

Above evening St.Petersburg.

But I think there is another reason. 

All stars now have arrived in the sky 

of the countries celebrating Christmas earlier than we.

Stars which usually look directly in my window

now are visiting their sisters in distant California.

They see my friends and by a beam of starlight,

send them my greetings and blessing,

Wishes of success and health,

Love and well-being.

«Even if the stars are not seen by my friends»

they will light their life and hearts 

with kindness and care,

with understanding and love during all Christmas holidays.

What Is Christmas

I laid my head down, upon blanket of cotton weave.
Maybe soft like the one Jesus was wrapped, in a swaddling sleeve.
It was at last Christmas tomorrow, an this was the eve.
But in Santa I no longer now have reason  to believe.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
We still today give our Lord praise.                                  (chorus)

The wise men were swirling in my thoughts tonight
Thoughts of Jesus once cradled in his mothers arms so tight.
The spirt of the night glistened in the candles twinkling light
I searched among my memories of better days with all my might.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
Many not all still love our lord in so many many ways        (chorus)

But all I could think of was the expense it brought to familes.
Credit cards extended to limits,  depts, homeless with chilling extremeties.
I wonder what Jesus might say as this once was his birthday.
If he were here might he gather his deciples for yet to again pray.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
Friends of families all come and go some astray               (chorus)

Why does misfortune affect so many with extreme debt?
Depression claims have of this God fearing world from finance fret
I try to understand as I am an adult now you see
But this world it stll so much baffles me.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
Bills and credit cards of all who get a pay                         (chorus)

If we were really celebrating his birth, are we if his worth,
To bemore appreciative of his fathers creations......one is earth.
God could have given us any thing at all
But he chose a gift more meaningfull, his own son to fall.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
The joy of love and Christ's brotherhood some say           (chorus)

He gives his love, his almight power.
He lifts us up in the final hour.

Oh what is Christmas to all now days
Candles lit for the as Christmas approaches day by day.   (chorus)

Spending Christmas All Alone

Spending Christmas all alone,
not even a ringing of the phone.
No knock on the door,
No one to share this with no more.
How can this be,
when last year she was with me.
What did I do,
to make this Christmas blue.
The tree is lit and the fire is hot,
the memories is all I got.
The hot coco is sweet,
the presents are wrapped very neat.
I am sitting here waiting for a call,
but what did I do, I can't recall.
Did I say something wrong,
or did I put something where it did not belong.
I wish you would come back to me,
thats what I want for christmas, you see.
No present can take your place,
no money can make our love erase.
Please come home and spend Christmas with me,
the door will be unlock and I'll be waiting by the tree.
If midnight comes and I hear no phone,
I will be spending Christmas all alone.

TODAY AND TIME PAST

TODAY   AND   TIME   PAST

I  feel  the wind SWEEP up the brae:
SWEEP    I  my  gaze into  far ago.
FAR   the stars of  Christmas  are,   long away
CHRISTMAS   some  two thousand years or so.

YEAR’S  darkest  evening is here.
HERE  is my family  -   safe from harm.
FAMILY  hands reach for  the warming fire,
HANDS   at travail  in this  hill farm.

Christmas time is almost here (Revised) Version 1

(Verse 1)
From the end of November through December 
That feeling is in the air
Celebration and good cheer
corner to corner lights begin to flicker

(Bridge)
Turkey Dinners and vegetable beef stew 
apple pies and sweet potatoes too.
Children laughing in delight 
A tree that represents the life

(Chorus)
Christmas time is almost here
Santa Claus and a jolly ho ho
Christmas time is almost here
Old Saint Nick with a twinkle in his eyes

(Verse 2)
Rudolph’s nose as a guiding light
Streets covered in white
A star that stands proud through the night
Love peace and joy to all

(Bridge)
Christmas time
Hey can ya hear it
That pitter patter of reindeer on the roof
All the world in a magical sleep

(Chorus)
Christmas time is almost here
up and down the chimney
Christmas time is almost here
Love filling all the young hearts

(Reprise)
Christmas Time .. Christmas Time .. 
Christmas time is almost here
Christmas time is almost here
Merry Christmas and happy new year to one and all

Things Aren't Ever Truly Free

For things in life that we've held as free,
Even things perchance obtained at a loss.
On this solitary matter I trust we agree,
Our salvation was postpaid at the cross.

Salvation's made available; no cost affixed,
I think of this gift each Christmas season.
Purchased on a cross two thieves betwixt,
I'm rejoicing knowing Jesus is the reason.

Tooling Down The Jersey Shore

Tooling Down The Jersey Shore 

This is a love poem 
While tooling down the Jersey Shore 
Crooning tunes it often does 
And warming off the sunny chill 


It's a long time familiar trip 
But New today, made by an angel’s company 
Although not known right away 
The atmosphere began to show 

The road was rising up 
Carrying me in a cup of an angel’s hand 
So special, words are hard to find, 
Much less to say; I’m at a loss- 

But, not the highway, 
For it remembers me well 
All my dreams -all those years 
I rode on white wall wheels 

Turning out lonely dreams 
Rolling over discontented woes 
About exactly where to go- down the shore 
Alone to act as though, someone waited 

Now, today, close to Christmas day 
An angel rides along holds my hand 
An promises what I longed so long ago 
Someone’s heart waits for me 

… at the shoreline door.

ANOTHER CHRISTMAS TO WISH AWAY

Before there were endless,
delightful days of tender joys
and together we cherished
a very sweet happiness;
there has never been a moment
this lonely and sad...

Outside there are
twinkling lights everywhere,
carols being joyfully sung
and enthusiastically played;
hasty folks carrying bags full of gifts,
glancing at items they shouldn't miss...

Beggars huddled together at cosy streets' corners,
don't ask for money,but wish every passerby, 
"Merry Christmas!"...hiding their empty eyes,  
hoping,like me, for a small miracle
in a wealthy city so very kind to all;
a great city, which never forgets generosity...

This is going to be
another Christmas to wish away,
writing fancy cards to friends and dear ones,
near or far;wrapping presents
by the glamorous Christmas Tree,
but the true spirit is not in me...

All I am wishing today:
is to have you around and inside this heart
for an entire lifetime;
if everyone wishes for what their heart desires,
I,too, can start dreaming of what
tomorrow can bring me...

This is going to be 
another Christmas to wish away,
to mark down in my unfinished diary:
as the saddest day
in my life's history...
not feeling how painful it can be!

O generous Christmas,listen for a minute...
I am hoping to see,in the shortest time,
her beautiful face showing the prettiest smile!
I am going to trace those distant footsteps
in the mist of the falling snowflakes;
O impatient Christmas,please wait!

My Christmas Eve

I've got one thing for Christmas time
That I've had all the year---
The Christmas lights of your two eyes
Whenever you appear.

The sweetest, softest tinsel known
Hangs golden down your head,
While all the songs of lasting joy
Are every word you've said.

I have unwrapped you o'er and o'er,
My present without cease;
De-ribboned on the tissued floor
I clasp my Christmas Eve.

Christmas All Alone

Just yesterday I watched the children play
as I gazed down from the bedroom window.
They were happy, ready for the holiday
while I was feeling so low. 

The neighbors say that Santa’s on his way
but I am sure it cannot be today.
For nothing has changed, it’s the same to me -
traces of tears everyday.

I feel so much pain, it looks it’s going to rain,
Christmas leaves me with this empty feeling.
No one really cares and nobody seems to see
that this day I’m so lonely.

They sing a song, a pretty yuletide tune
but it brings no meaning to me at all.
No one to greet me this dark, cold Christmas -
it’s Christmas time, all alone.


Details | Lyric | |

YOU FOR CHRISTMAS

The snow is coming down outside
beautiful white covered streets,
twinkling as it falls reminders of how much I love you.
I can't see you anywhere, I begged you not to go
but you did  it anyway.
 
Holiday lights are going up everywhere
even I put my Christmas tree up,
topping the Angel on top my wish was
"Having you here for Christmas".
 
Children running playing in the snow
elders admiring the decorations 
those in love holding hands keeping warm in the December cold.
I'm walking by watching it all pass, still wishing I had you for Christmas.
 
Christmas Day families waking up together
love is all around them,
I'm waking up all alone
looking at your picture besides me I have to let a tear drop
my Christmas wish never came true.
I don't have you 
for Christmas.
