For Your First Christmas

It’s your first Christmas and I want you to see
Not just the carols you hear and gifts you receive
But the meaning of Jesus’s birth and its beauty
Then share the love and joy to the world we live

It’s your first Christmas and I want you to enjoy
Not just the food and all the festivities
But also the words from God ‎and shout them with joy
‎Then learn the real reasons for these activities

It’s your first Christmas though you won’t remember
I’ll remind you it’s beyond the party and play
Let love live with you not just now but forever
May you experience Jesus in your everyday

Holiday Blues

It’s 4PM and it’s already dark
The wind chill is piercing and I wish –
I’m at home in front of the fireplace
Enjoying its warmth and its heat
Then watch the snowfall by the window
With you by my side, admiring its beauty
Instead, here I am outside, wandering
Going nowhere, cold, lost and searching
Looking for nothing, for love, for you
Somehow, I always end up in this park
Right on this bench where we used to hang…
—–
It’s this time of year when pain is too much
It’s reminiscent of the past, that night –
We were at this bench, giggling nonsensically
We enjoyed the cold and nothing mattered
Then you popped the question but then…
Glimpses of lies start rushing through my mind
I wish I knew what went wrong to undo it
How can I move on and see things differently
I only wish these days, the holidays, to quickly pass
So I can stop counting each snowflake
Right on this bench where we used to hang…

It’s Christmas

Scent of eggnog is in the air
Sparkling decors are everywhere
Santa’s here, he’s ready to play
It’s an amazing Christmas day!

The choirs are singing gloriously
The kids are cheering gleefully
Gifts are exchanged by everyone
It’s Christmas! It’s time to have fun!

Welcome the birth of Christ, the King
Feel the love that is outpouring
Celebrate with joy, hope and peace
Time to enjoy this Christmas feast!
