December- joy and hope

That time of year is here again

With the joyful twinkle of the bells

Glowing lights above the streets

Presents, chosen, packed and hid.

A time of forgiveness, of happiness

A time when  the year behind us is filled with achievements

Hopes, dreams and fears

And a new page in our life is getting near.


But in this mess of thoughts and shopping rush

Let’s take a moment to reflect and blush

For out there, a few of us

Have no tree to decorate

No lights to put on their house

And no Christmas dinner to feast on.

A few of them maybe deserve this faith

Maybe they’re lazy and filled with hate

But some of those might need our help

And guidance to a happy end

Of the year.


Therefore listen to my words dear children

Happiness isn’t found in presents

I’ve found joy when ,joining The Red Cross

I went to visit an orphanage

There I saw kids of many ages

Good or bad, tall and short, boys and girls,

They all had stories behind those big puppy eyes

And all they wanted was someone to listen

They begged for a shoulder to cry on

They wanted a stranger, a friend…maybe a mom and a dad…

And so, I did my best to be something of this things.


We gathered together, and said our names

Played a few games and a bit of charades

They stood amazed, looking at me

For they began to feel I was now their family

I could feel their joy flowing throw their smiles

Those big eyes, nearly crying

Of happiness and gratitude.


Time flew, as it always does

And before I knew it, my visit was done.

I packed my things and said goodbye

But in my heart I felt more than alive.


I made a few little friends that day

I promised I’ll visit them again

With presents too, for this time I was unprepared

But I think they didn’t care.

All I could see when I went off

Was their shinny eyes gazing to me

They were glad I went to them

That now, they have another family in me.


So, when you’ll open your present on the day of Christmas

Take a second and think of others out there

Spread the joy not by sitting at the fireplace

But by doing something to make a change.

well...I'm supposed to say something smart now: POTATO!

Wonderful message here tudoricus! Is its extraordinarily kind and thoughtful to say the least. I like the on and off rhymes too, its my favorite format because of the freedom.

Thanks for sharing this :)

Perfection; my greatest strength and weakness.
