Heart of Christmas
Hidden amongst the layers of warmth
Eerie snores as the house sleeps
Are a family,
Re-united for the Christmas holiday
tears of joy engulfed their happiness
Ordinary people loving the surprises
forever remembering their Christian upbringing
Children noses red with cold , lanterns lit
hopping from one foot to other…as
roasting in the embers of the fire, chestnuts…their
insides popping in the heat.
So many memories, happy and sad.. envisages
tables laden with food, begging to be ate
Mother fussing over every last detail…prayers said…sit
a family, breaking bread together.
Smiles on faces say it all….Christmas Greetings to everyone.
