A Season Of Joy – A Collaboration

Kim, from Peace, Love and Patchouli , and I wrote this poem together about the holiday season!

 

 

A Season of Joy

By: B.G. and Kim

 

The sky turns to white

No trace of blue remains

When asked if it will make an appearance

The sun decides to refrain

 

The beginning of snow starts to fall

As the grass is covered in frost

Soon it feels as if warmth

Will be forever lost

 

The joyous sounds of carols

Sung round the Christmas tree

Leaves memories of laughter

That I carry along with me.

 

The happy children peeking

At presents down below

Wondering as they shake them

Could it be a new sled for snow?

 

I miss the days of long ago

When I was then oh so young

And the excitement for the morning

Waiting for it sleeplessly to come.

Christmas is the time I love

And I recall with laughter and tears

Of friends and family together

And the passing of the years.

 

Of the merry lights that twinkle

And the cocoa by the jug

Of the crystal snow that falls

Covering the gloomy ground with love.

As I sit staring at the lights on the tree

I remember the beauty of this time of year

A time when we try to put our anger and sadness aside

Replacing feelings of unhappiness with cheer

 

Seeing family members

Sharing kind words with friends

Reading cards of greetings

That loved ones often send

 

These things bring me happiness

A feeling that can never be taken away

There’s nothing I love more

Than the joy that is Christmas Day
