Christmas joy and kindness (poem)

Christmas for all

Christmas joy and kindness

The Christmas decorations are appearing all around.
Tinsel, baubles and angles, upon Christmas trees are found.
Beneath the tree there’s space for the presents on Christmas Day,
For now they’re hidden from the children, safely tucked away.
Plans for visiting friends, times for sharing a drink or two.
Plans for visiting relatives, who is visiting who?

Christmas kindness is appearing in smiles ready to share.
A chance to show at Christmas, that for others you do care.
A chance to notice strangers, to see if they are in need,
To stop awhile, lend a hand, and do for them a kind deed.
To share with them a little of the Christmas joy you know,
Encouraging the Christmas spirit within them to grow.

Christmas is a time of celebration, a time of cheer,
To share some kindness with everyone, both far and near.
Christmas decorations brighten up the world where we live,
Christmas kindness brings happiness, a chance for us to give.
Let Christmas be a time where joy and happiness are shared,
Let Christmas be a time where everyone knows you cared.

It is Christmas Day (poem)

Christmas Day is here

It is Christmas Day

It is Christmas Day and Father Christmas has been,
Just by the bed a Christmas stocking can be seen.
Within it there are sweets, plus some toys they can play,
Such a wonderful beginning to Christmas Day.

The turkey’s in the oven, cooking nice and slow,
With lots more food prepared, it’s all ready to go.
Such a feast set before us, upon the table,
There is so much food to eat, will I be able?

In the Afternoon, more family come around,
Then, under the Christmas tree, more presents are found!
Keenly they are unwrapped, happiness is let out,
Joyfulness and laughter is floating all about.

Games are played round the table, Toys are on the floor,
A blue racing car comes whizzing through the hall door.
The teddy bears have been put to bed on the chairs
Except for one that is found sitting on the stairs.

Evening brings a calmness, time to just sit around,
After such a busy day, peacefulness is found.
The children are ready for their beds once again,
Christmas Day departs, but the memories remain.

The gift of giving at Christmas (poem)

There is so much you can give at Christmas

The gift of giving at Christmas

The gifts sit upon the table awaiting my attention,
With wrapping paper and red ribbon scattered everywhere.
Checking my Christmas lists, has everyone had a mention?
I am pretty certain there is no one missing off of there.
There are the ones for the family, with those I shall begin,
Then comes the one for the friends that I have met along the way.
A couple of hours later and I’m beginning to win.
Not long now until they will all be ready for Christmas Day.

At last! They are wrapped and stacked, but it isn’t over yet,
(I shall just have a short break and grab something nice to eat)
For I have a special heap that’s meant for those that we forget,
For charities to share with lonely strangers I’ll never meet
These presents are quite simple, nothing grand or overstated,
But it will give Christmas to a person who’s alone somewhere.
Christmas brings the gift of giving, a day to be celebrated,
Christmas brings the gift of letting the world know that you care.

Let there be kindness at Christmas (poem)

Christmas is for caring

Let there be kindness at Christmas

Let there be kindness at Christmas, for one and all,
Let others know the dove of peace has come to call.
Let others see that with you, Christmas can be kind,
Leave spoonfuls of joyfulness for others to find.
Distribute your smiles, let them float to those around,
So when the smiles reaches them, happiness is found.

Let there be understanding at Christmas this year,
Let others know that your forgiveness is now here.
Let others see that with you, hate does not belong,
That with you, they will once more find hope and feel strong.
Open up your heart, and let them know that you care,
And that when tomorrow comes, you will still be there.

Sharing your love in hard times (poem)


There is plenty of love deep within us all 
A november rose
Sharing your love in hard times

Love may never seem easy when times are very hard,
Sometimes you feel that there is nothing left within.
Sometimes it seems fate has dealt you an unforgiving card,
And you feel that with the game of love, you cannot win.

Love needs no cards, for there is no game it has to play,
So take those cards and toss them high up into the air!
Love lives within your heart and can never fade away,
Just hand it out, for there is plenty in there to share.

Let peace find a way (poem)


Being peace to those around you

Let peace find a way

Let peace find a way,
Throughout this new day,
Let love find a place in your life.
Let forgiveness win,
Share peace from within,
And let harmony replace strife.

Show others you care,
That you will be there,
When this day brings troubles to them.
Where discord if found,
Then turn it around,
And let peace shine bright, like a gem.

Sending a hug (poem)


A little comfort in your time of need

Sending a hug

I am sending a hug to you on this day,
A little comfort coming from me to you.
To let you know that you are not far away,
In my thoughts, for what you are going through.

No words can I say that will ease your sorrow,
Nor any help I can give to guide your way.
So a hug I send for now and tomorrow,
A little comfort to help you through each day.

Hugs, hearts and rainbows (short poems)


A collection of short poems.

Accepting a hug

Accept a hug in joyfulness,
Let it wrap you in its loving embrace.
Let it pass on its happiness,
And set a smile upon your face.

Beginning with the heart

When something new,
Comes into your view,
It can bring uncertainty on where to start.
Just look within,
On where to begin,
For the best guide is your own loving heart.

Life’s inner rainbow

Life’s inner rainbow comes in many shades and hues,
Within every part of us these colours do dwell.
So whenever you feel you are just living in the blues,
Glance around, for the other colours are there as well.

The joy of living (poem)


We can bring joy to ourselves and to those around us

The Joy of Living

The joy of living and giving,
Brings a happiness to us all.
To be loving and forgiving,
Helps to heal a wound if we fall.

The joy of caring and sharing,
Brings harmony into our life.
With your own life, be sparing,
And to others, help ease their strife.

The joy of being and seeing,
Lets us know our humanity.
If our inner peace we are freeing,
It will help to bring serenity.

The joy of knowing and showing,
That a better person we are.
Helps the world to keep on growing,
And lets our kindness travel far.
