"Christmas Eve Memories"
The leaves have fallen! Crisp dew crackles under boots!
Icicles hang flowing! Stars sparkle and shoot!
Cheeks, red and rosy! Cold nipping the nose!
Winter's night calling! Flakes of glitter and snow!
Hanging mistletoe! At the head of the stairs!
The scent of pine! Sweet cinnamon in the air!
Warm now inside! Off with the scarf!
Parents and siblings! Gathered by the hearth!
Reflections of flames! Dancing embers in the eyes!
The aroma of cocoa! Mugs in hands, by sides!
Tiny children in pajamas! Cuddling by the fire!
A decorated tree, in the corner! A time to inspire!
Mother's soft kisses! A snuggling circle is found!
Safe and secure! Quiet love, there abounds!
Father smiles, while reading! The story of a child!
Each small one listening! Amazed and mild!
In their minds, visions! Of shepherds and kings!
A star so bright! Heavenly angels sing!
Peace and happiness! In moments so dear!
A family forever! As Christmas is near!
