my christmas wish

it’s snowing on the gold coast
the palms are draped soft white
whispers carried through the breeze
sing carols to the night

from christmas lights and candles
their magic all aglow
a sense of peace, of hope, of love
a joy, begins to grow

it lifts the weight of daily life
it stirs the soul to rise
visions of the best you are
appear before your eyes

reflections of encouragement
you offered to a friend
forgiveness where the circumstance
gave license to offend

the patience and the kindness
revealed in each good deed
the simple act of charity
performed for one in need

the character which moved you
to speak against that wrong
when others, well-intentioned
were silent for too long

the moment your ambition
gave way to something more
a greater sense of purpose
than you had known before

for these, the gifts you’ve given
give birth to those received
as faith and inspiration
in yourself should be achieved

the promise of the new year
my christmas wish for you
begins with recognition
in yourself for all you do.
