This is Christmas –

Carols and choirs,
Candy canes and caring.
Midnight, miracles,
Magic and mystery.

A mother, a child,
A shepherd, a lamb.
Santa, his elves, 
And silver bells.

A child asking, “Do you think I’ve been good?”
And reindeer flying the way that they should.
Hay in a manger, glitter on the floor.
Gold, frankincense, and mirth.

Families that are close or far apart.
All the above – or nothing at all
Because a heart that is full
Is what Christmas is about.
