This weeks theme is 'a special Christmas memory'.
Each Christmas came,
each Christmas went.
I felt, each one,
was heaven sent.
Each sparkling light,
each golden star,
each Christmas carol,
note and bar
added to that special glow,
the one that every child knows.
The magic in the dark of night,
excitement causing pain so tight
one could hardly breath
let alone sleep throughout the night.
Friends and family gathered there,
warmth and love for all to share.
The whole day long
the happy throng
The week of Christmas
saw a trend
from all our friends.
They came to see the tree alight
glowing darkly in the night.
They came to see what Santa brought,
to make amends o'er what we fought.
For after all, a New Year starts
at the end
of every Christmas
Those days now a hazy dream
as through veils of time I view the scene
But in my heart they will remain
each Christmas was the very same.
Each and every one,
the MOST special memory.
