The Spirit of the Season

By 7th December 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

Hustling, bustling, pushing and shoving
Cash tills ringing, bank balances dwindling
The Spirit of the season
Somehow has lost its meaning!

It’s not about the shopping
Or the presents ‘neath the tree
The Spirit of the season
Is about friends and family

It’s the love we share for one another
Buried way down inside
The Spirit of the season
Is when love comes alive!

It’s the smile on children’s faces
With rosy cheeks a glow
The frolicking and laughter
Making Angels in the snow

It’s about winter days made brighter
With twinkling Christmas lights
Getting cosy by the fire
On those dark and gloomy nights

It’s about families getting together
Remembering loved ones passed
Sharing in the good times
Making memories that last

It’s about suppressing all the anger
All the hurting, all the pain
Then looking deep inside oneself
And embracing love again

The Spirit of the season
Is a joy for all to boast
So take the time to stop and think
About what truly matters most!
