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.

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.

A Christmas wish (poem)


A time for peace, love and joy.

A Christmas Wish

A Christmas wish that peace can be found,
That understanding will find a way.
That towards harmony, we are all bound,
And that an outstretched hand wins the day.

A Christmas wish that our love we will share,
With those we know and those that we meet.
That our friends know that, for them we do care,
And to strangers, give a smile in the street.

A Christmas wish that we are filled with joy,
That this time brings to us all happiness.
That laughter is heard from each girl and boy,
As we relax and release our weariness.

Let love, peace and joy be our Christmas gift,
To everyone, whether a stranger or a friend.
Then across the world, harmony will drift,
Helping the wounds of humanity to mend.

The Manger (Christmas poem)


The Christmas story of that first night


The Manger

The manger has been cleaned and prepared,
With all the straw the animals need,
Placed into the stable to be shared,
Between the animals, for their feed.

To the stable, with its manger ready,
Come two seeking for a place they can stay.
Joseph, a carpenter from Galilee,
Mary, who has a baby on the way.

Then during the night, Mary gives birth,
So, from the manger, a crib is made.
The son of God has come to the Earth,
And into the manger, he is laid.

Mary gently lays down his sweet head,
Our Lord sleeping peacefully within.
From such a humble and lowly bed,
Does the story of our Lord begin.

Christmas, A time of forgiveness (poem)


Let Christmas bring healing and peace


Christmas, a time of forgiveness

A time of forgiveness, a time of goodwill,
A time to forget anger and let the wounds heal.
A time for the hope that came with His birth,
A time to reflect upon His work on this earth.

A time to remember those who cannot be here,
To raise up a glass and remember them with cheer.
Of the joy that you shared with them a long time ago,
For although they are gone, their love you still know.

A time of celebration with others around,
To make new friends of any strangers you have found,
To give to those who are less fortunate than you,
To help them find happiness, their hope to renew.

This time of the year should always bring peace,
As we look for the star that rose in the East.
As we remember the goodness that came from above,
And pray that to others, we can share some of His love.
