~ Reflections ~
The branches were so full
With wonders of forever,
Ice to sparkle, Snowflakes soft
To bring us all together.
Eternal joys, lasting peace
Were placed so carefully there,
Tied so firm in the perfect place
With the strongest ties of prayer.
Friends were tucked within each bough
Laden down with love,
The candles burning at each tip
Twinkling beauty from above.
Hidden under were the gifts
All wrapped up so tight
These were the secret treasures
To help us make it through the night.
And, then on Christmas day
We collected such of ours to see
To open up each one
For inside the heart of me.
They all portrayed so much
Each filling up our world,
To make this year so blessed
A burst of love unfurled.
For you knew what to say
And you knew what to do,
You knew to send your love
To make each day like Christmas
For the year that's new.
Now the tree is empty once more
And now the tree is bare
For all the love stored up for our tomorrows
Is for us to share.
May the memories received
Carry us over time,
May God's love hold us all in wonder
So more treasures we will find
Of the lasting kind
