Christmas Wish

Christmastoo2013 007d
This poem always brings tears to my eyes. It did when I wrote it, and it does every year as I read it. I wrote it thinking about those I love, and don’t get to see or visit with as often as I would like. Again, it is my sincere and my heart felt wish.

 

If I could have a Christmas wish, I know what it would be
We’d spend some real time catching up, over a cup of Christmas tea
We’d talk about the years gone by, how quickly they have flown
We’d talk about our children, and how quickly they have grown
 
If I could have a Christmas wish, time and space would have no sway
Old friends, although seldom seen, would never slip away
But rather, with the Season, in glow of Christmas tree
Unfettered hearts would meet again, over a cup of Christmas tea
 
If I could have a Christmas wish, I know what it would be
We’d have a good ole’ heart to heart, with our cup of Christmas tea
We’d laugh until we cried; we’d eat the things we shouldn’t
We’d talk about the things we’ve done, that we always said we wouldn’t
 
If I could have a Christmas wish, I’d make a wish for you
I’d wish you joy, I’d wish you love, and peace to see you through
The joy that comes from knowing Christ came to set us free
The love of Christmas every day, as through His eyes we see
The peace that passes circumstance, and knows that in the end,
The Christ Child born that star lit night, is Savior, Lord and Friend
 
So let’s both make a Christmas wish
I’ll think of you, you think of me
We’ll share a smile and remember…
Over a cup of Christmas tea
