The true Christmas spirit is putting others’ happiness before our own, and finding you’ve never known such happiness.
The silver glow of Christmas twilight,
Saw the child staggering home,
Into the dark, frosty woods.
Fingers frozen, in she went
To see her brother weeping.
“Santa’s forgotten us”, the little one cried .
‘Twas a Christmas day
When love discovered its path,
Anchored in hearts, it blossomed into
A home for all.
Cold, dark and scared,
Wrapping him in her cloak,
She cradled him till the sobbing ceased.
Mother arrived at the twelfth stroke,
With unsold quilts,
And held the frozen ones close.
Her tender love
Warmed their chilled souls.
With grateful hearts,
In wonderland dreams were they lost.
For lack of temporal presents,
They’d been given a celestial mother
A blazing star in their skies .
Mother’s love is infinite.
A child can’t outgrow it and a mother can’t conceal it.”
― Michael Bassey Johnson, The Book of Maxims, Poems and Anecdotes
I wrote this poem for the Winter Writing Workshop hosted by Reese @ Blogging with Reese! The prompt was to write a winter poem in less than 125 words. It was inspired by Coco Cola’s 2020 commercial. Watch it below! It’s a lovely commercial!
