A CHRISTMAS WISH
a poem by Audrey Austin
A time of love, a time for sharing
Let’s find new ways to light the path
While old traditions tried and true
Express how much we’re caring
For our family,
For our friends,
For people ‘round our hungry world.
A time of peace, a time for laughter
Let’s find new ways to share the love
While old relationships hold fast
We’ll open hearts, extend our reach
To neighbours near,
To friends afar,
To those with whom we’ve yet to meet.
A time of joy, a time to remember
The holy birth of the blessed child
Who gave us the reason
To celebrate this season
A season of love, of caring, of sharing,
Love brightens the path of all who journey
Transforms the lives of all who are weary.
Hold the light, share the light, be the light.

Merry Christmas! I wish you peace, health, prosperity,
and the joy of poetry shared.
