Year Two

Written by: jeff eklund

What happened on His second birthday?
Where were the shepards and the Magi?
Did they remember or did they care …

Did ox and ass sense 
the time when he was cradled
among them returned?

Two thousand years have passed 
And we talk about it but 
do we remember Him
or them for the true purpose

the gift we buy is forgotten a week, a month, or a year later
or a gift we got, forgot a week, a month, or a year
later.

Did the gift come that 
morning or thirty-three years later?
what about year two,
three, ten, twenty, or 2011?

When did we receive the most precious 
gift of all, and what was it?
Salvation; that’s all, for the ages
That's all we needed
