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.
