” Christmas ” – every day poetry 55

” Christmas ”

❆ ❅ ❄

hope it is warm to the soul

like the messages sent

from friends and family all

❆ ❅ ❄

i sent no cards again this year

i rarely ever do

so this to my friends and family

i hope brings good cheer to U

❆ ❅ ❄

i haven’t any gift to give U

not in the tangible sense

but all i have given U

is the all who i am

❆ ❅ ❄

i know i come short some times

too much infiltration of that which plagues this soul

but always do i keep you in mind

in my every moment of sharing the love i am

❆ ❅ ❄

i don’t know if you have seen it

it is oft times hard to recognize

❆ ❅ ❄

like when i did not slam the door

even i disatisfied with… whatever it was

like when i am mostly always civil in my approach

like when i give everybody a chance

i observe

and at times don’t say nothing at all

like when i allow people to have their problem

and work to not let it affect me

❆ ❅ ❄

mostly though

i give my love by

listening

sharing ideas

doing anything i can to help a friend/family in a practical manner

by not preaching… U should do this, U should do that, it is because U are a this             and U did not do that

❆ ❅ ❄

by being as gracious, merciful, and kind as can be

in disagreements

in heated moments

in your frustrations

❆ ❅ ❄

so when i do become independent from poverty

yes, i shall be the same person

and if you are my friend now

certainly, you shall be my friend then

it is the temperament of my character

❆ ❅ ❄

so this is all i know about

Christmas
