Merry Christmas

Somewhere, out there
Just on the edge or our sight
There is someone,
Someone who needs you
Needs us
To show the way
(not just at this time,
not just this year)
to demonstrate with deeds
actions
and words
Why
Why we help
Why we care
Why we love
And
Why we celebrate
(not just at this time,
not just this year)
To do so is simple, really
No special robes
No fancy books
Just a touch,
Just a look
Or
An unexpected smile
The specifics are not the reason
Not the candles
Not the tree
Not even the birth
The reason is love
Love for all
Shown by all
And
Carried forward,
(not just at this time,
not just this year)
