Christmas Eve, 2013

anticipation at its height

gifts and presents in the children’s sight

their happiness is our delight

as we struggle to keep the LIGHT

is this the moment we have waited for

one more chance for God at our door

one more time we bend to the floor

one more time we plead for more

how many times have we weathered the storm

we know we need the LIGHT reborn

deep within the fire does warm

please let this be the day we are transformed

sadness abounds, we know it everywhere

death and sorrow, stirs in the air

thrown out for not having the fare

thrown out, wallowing deep in despair

a child unfed, a woman is beat

the man on the street without a sheet

we seek the LIGHT, it is this we beg to meet

we will not give up, not go down in defeat

no rice grain is found in the old woman’s bowl

no water to drink for the newborn foal

hatred and greed have taken their toll

we ask for the LIGHT to make us whole

we plead and we cry as we do weep

we ask for the LIGHT to be within us deep

so many tears, so many fears we do keep

release them all and in YOUR PEACE sleep
