I was going through some old poems I had written years ago and found this one.
The Christmas season is upon us
We’re all so cheerful and gay.
But too many people have forgotten
The real meaning of Christmas Day.
Long ago in Bethlehem
A child in a manger lay
For God sent Him to earth
To show mankind the way.
He was born in a lonely manger
There was no room at the inn
He was sent by God in Heaven
To pay the price for our sins.
The wise men came that night
Sharing gifts from lands afar
To see the king that was a born to them
For they had seen the star.
The glory of the Lord came down
While angels sang His praise.
So when you think of Christmas cheer
Remember that first Christmas Day.
