Christmas Period

Season of hope,sharing and merriment,
deep love shown to many as compliment,
assorted food and gifts bought for a fee,
the joy of giving has overwhelmed me.

Time to remember God`s love for mankind,
which is unique and difficult to find,
From slavery,sins and vile we were set free,
the joy of giving has overwhelmed me.

To replicate this  we  show gratitude,
making people smile is a nice attitude,
good act of giving  only few can see,
the joy of giving has overwhelmed me.

Coloured lights and Christmas trees are in vogue,
enticing  gifts  can  turn  child  to  a rogue,
as  couples  relax on shores  of  the sea,
the joy of giving has  overwhelmed me.

Carols,shows with fireworks create more delight,
which makes this performance a yearly rite,
as I  give thanks and  praises  unto  thee,
the joy of giving to others soothes me.
