On That Day - Christmas 2009

Like most we wandered and wavered and fell for the devil's wily ways But not on that day On that day all sins were forgiven Curses dissolved into blessings Tension melted in the glow of good will Evil evaporated in the light of truth Grief fell victim to delight Death succumbed to life Sipping on Eggnog spiked with Rum Hugging our sons and our daughters Gently scolding wayward grandchildren Slapping old friends on the back Bragging and telling tall tales Laughing hysterically at our lies On that day there were no missing pieces On that day the wounded world was healed On that blessed and blissful day it all made sense

Wonderful descriptive write about those few "perfect" days that we experience with loved ones. Wish all our days were like this...but then, that would be heaven! Great poem, Tim :)

This gives one the warm feelings of love hope, family and friendship.....all the things that we too often set aside, and take for granted, in the troubles of our day. Nicely said, Tim !! Good one!
