My Wish this Christmas Day
Gifts around the tree piled high,
Lights blinking merrily through the night.
Songs of Christmas play soft and low,
The moonlight reflecting off of the snow.
In just a short while the laughter will ring,
And children will ask, What did Santa bring?
The smells of breakfast soon fill the air.
It seems that happiness is everywhere.
Hugs and kisses are passed about.
Who found that mistletoe and got it out?
As I partake of this Christmas Day,
A couple of things I'll try to say.
A day of peace I wish for all,
May sadness not come round to call.
I wish for all a day so bright,
That there would be no room for night.
God bless, my friends, is all I can say.
This is my wish this Christmas Day.
