To Give Is A Great Gift 🎄

by Alan Bedworth

Town centres full of Christmas lights 
choirs stood singing carols.
It's that time once again.

People greeting one another
and wishing great tidings.
At this time people try to be peaceful.

Children wish for plenty of presents.
Adults giving to others,
is the main motivation.

Yet not far away 
people are sheltering, 
inside cardboard boxes.

There are some good Samaritans,
who feed and clothe them.
All in the spirit of the season.

To give is better than to receive,
just to see the reaction 
of those receiving.

Christmas time can be so uplifting.
so spread your joy it is the season,
and have a Merry Christmas.
