Merry Christmas

jesus and the season merry christmas

Merry Christmas!


Packages gathered under a tree

A giggling child upon your knee

The ability to roam around free

Thanks to God,

And Science

and Democracy.


Let us never forget when the “you”

Greets a “me”

A space is created

Where the “us”

Can just be.


Whether kneeling or standing

It all comes to this-

We would

None of us

Be here

Without God’s first kiss.


So let’s toast to the season

And be of good cheer

Remembering the Reason

We’re all really here.


With gratitude for this oh so special Day
