Not As It Seems

Rick's folks wired baby Jesus down!

Christmas presents under the tree

Spot the dog sitting next to me

Grandpa asleep in the easy chair

Where is grandma I see her no where

Mom is crying in her room

Dad is trying to heal her wounds

Food on the table just sitting there

Appetites gone and the chairs are bare

Television is off today

Music is softly playing a way

Christmas is a time for all to draw near

But not all feel this is true I say in fear

Lives are lived and thought to be

Merry as ever as all can be

Emotions come in a variety of ways

Christmas can come as a gloomy day

Draw near to each other and hold them tight

Look to God and see his bright light

Death picks no season nor time of year

God has it chosen but we should not fear

We live our lives by the golden rules

And  whatever our God says we must do

Accept our lives for what they are

Share with each other here or afar

Praise the holy baby born

Do not live life so full of scorn

Christmas is not always as people say

But let’s stick together and praise the day.

Terry Shepherd
