Come, let us all go towards the new (poem)

Let tonight bring a new tomorrow

Come, let us all go towards the new

Come, let us all go towards the new,
Let us leave the past to yesterday.
Come, let us seek out a better view,
Let us travel a different way.

Let a new dawn be found from tonight,
With a tomorrow to hold our dreams.
Bringing a bright new world into sight,
Filled with bird songs and bubbling streams.

Come, let us build a new tomorrow,
Let us grow love and heal all the pain.
Come, let us lessen all the sorrow,
Let us find happiness once again.

Let the new dawn throw away the old,
Replacing it with hope we can share.
Bringing a warmth to replace the cold,
A chance to show the world that we care.

Giving the gifts of forgiveness (poem)

Special gifts you can give at Christmas, or anytime

Giving the gifts of forgiveness

The gifts of forgiveness are wrapped up with thoughtfulness,
Each gift is selected with a touch of tenderness.
Each gift has a purpose, special to those who receive,
To encourage them in your forgiveness, to believe.

There’s the gift of understanding, that you understand why,
How it all went wrong, and can we give it another try.
There’s the gift of peace, saying please let the anger go?
Let’s find some harmony and let the peacefulness grow.

It includes an apology, regardless of who was right,
Saying ‘let’s forgive and forget’, let the past fade from sight,
There is the salve of healing, for the wounds and the pain,
To mend the scars and make the friendship healthy again.

Lastly there’s the gift of kindness, letting them know you care,
That in any problems they may face, then you will be there.
The gifts of forgiveness are always handmade and true,
Delivered by hand and made within the heart of you.

Let Christmas bring a change in you (poem)

Christmas within ourselves

Let Christmas bring a change in you

Let Christmas bring a change in you, if only for a while,
Let Christmas remove your frown, leaving behind a smile.
Let Christmas bring a light to places where darkness dwells,
Replace the sound of strife, with the sound of Christmas bells.

Let Christmas be a time where your joyfulness is found,
Where you retrieve your goodwill and share it all around.
Let Christmas stretch out your hand to those who are in need,
Amidst your busy life, find time to do a good deed.

Let Christmas be a celebration, a chance for fun,
Bringing happiness to all, under the Christmas sun.
In amongst the hustle of trying to reach Christmas Day,
Remember to pause a while, so you do not lose your way.

Let Christmas bring a chance to change the world that you know,
To both friends and strangers, let your kindness be on show.
Enjoy Christmas in the way that is the best for you,
Whether in groups or alone, find peace in what you do.

When the year is at its darkest (poem)

Getting through the darkest times

When the year is at its darkest

When the year is at its darkest, with the sunshine far away,
And without that warming sun, it becomes another cold day.
On this dark winter’s day you may find it hard to make it through,
But even when the world is cold, your heart will be warm in you.

This day will not linger, its darkness was never meant to last,
And without even trying, this day will fade into your past.
Where this day will take you to, there may be no way of knowing,
But even if you rest a while, this day will keep on going.

Tomorrow will always come to us, bringing to us its light,
Sending whispers of hopes new dawn, spreading into this dark night.
It may seem far away, and on the horizon barely seen,
But the dawn is coming, bringing a new day all fresh and clean.

When the year is at its darkest, hopes light can always be found,
It may seem to be hiding, but it’s always somewhere around.
Somewhere not too far away, someone will have some they can share,
Then one day within your own heart, you will find hopes light is there.
