Christmas is a celebration,
of not just an age-old tradition.
It’s a time when one gets together,
it’s a time when one tells the other —
how much one depends on love,
how much one starves for it,
how much this person has provided what they always needed to live.
Don’t look at this day
as one to while away.
In this world, reasons are far to few
to make merry and live life to its due.
Here’s one for you,
hold it close and celebrate what is due.
