How Christmas Should Be

How Christmas Should Be

i can hear the sleigh bells ringing
just as the doors are slowly closing
for the vagabonds across the street
praying for a magical Christmas treat.

i can see the snowflakes falling
just as homes are shaking
for all the war zone cities
hoping for a peaceful Christmas.

i can feel the gust of wind blowing
just as dreams are gradually dying
for victims of abuse and violence
wishing for a lovely Christmas chance.

i can smell the midnight coffee brewing
just as the elderly people are crying
on a cold winter night in the home for the aged
wishing they were with their loved ones on Christmas eve.

i can taste the burnt cheesecake in my mouth, melting
just as the egos and pride are concluding
for friends and families joyfully reunited
celebrating Christmas with love and gratitude.

P.S

The festive mood of the photo reminds me of the forthcoming Christmas and what would it be like to those who are less fortunate and in great despair.

    As usual, Mich you’ve dug deep into the emotions. The joyful times are double edged. For some it brings happiness and for some it brings sorrow for what might have been. Thanks for joining in.

    Thanksgiving has a key part – giving! And at Christmas giving gifts is central… I hope those without can be gifted with the very things they need most!!

  7. You’ve pitted two contrasting worlds against each other. It’s sad that the less fortunate will be struggling even as others are rejoicing.
