The Village Christmas

The Village Christmas It was the brightest night I’ve ever seen Stars shined like diamonds this Christmas Eve Then snow fell before daylight And covered our village in sparkling white My family gathered around the fire To hear stories only daddy could tell Wide eyed and sleepy we listened in wonder And then drifted off in a magical slumber All through the night the only sound Was the whisper of fresh falling snow And my last thought when falling asleep I’ve been good and hoped Santa would know As the morning sun rose on a village in white We climbed from our beds to see Beautiful gifts and holiday goodies Stashed under the Christmas tree Church bells rang and carolers sang Giving thanks to our Christ child born The candles they carried gave such a warm glow On the crest of the fresh fallen snow Our family arrived throughout the day Bringing treats for the big Christmas feast Turkey and pies and cookies oh my That no one could wait to eat Laughter and giggles filled our home And love was shared by all While grandpa sat puffing his pipe Enjoying the spirit of it all As families left to return to their homes A silence came over our house We all bowed our heads and gave thanks for this day With a prayer mama said so well
