A CHRISTMAS TREE

This Christmas I want to be, The symbol of a Christmas tree. The symbol of love, hope and goodness, As the past years have been full of darkness. This Christmas I want to be, The joy brought by a Christmas tree. The joy that fills the emptiness and pain, The joy that saturates the exosphere as rain. This Christmas I want to be The togetherness brought by a Christmas tree. The unity that knits families together, And the bond that keeps families stronger, This Christmas I want to be, The smile brought by a Christmas tree, The smile that radiates people’s faces, And inundates families and different races. This Christmas what will you be? I hope you can also choose to be something to me. Be to someone a Christmas tree, And at least this Christmas, let’s fill people with much glee. This Christmas I want to be, The salvation of a Christmas tree. The birth of a sacred virgin’s child, As the future savior so meek and mild. This Christmas I want to be, The optimism of a Christmas tree, Putting all the bad things behind us, We can look forward to a future were love will always find us. This Christmas I want you to be, The special thing you will like to give to me. Be the gift and the nicely adorned treasure, That can surprise my heart without measure. MERRY CHRISTMAS & A PRESPEROUS NEW YEAR

I'm not usually one for love/care-driven poetry, but this piece is beautiful Jacob! Lovely metaphor, and a lovely use of repetition.
