For Us ๐ŸŽ„

by Teresa Burleson

The Gift is given.
At the appointed
Nanosecond,
He was sent.
Deity wore flesh,
The Owner of all
With nowhere
To lay His head,
The Only Begotten
Birthed where beasts were kept,
Welcomed by shepherds,
Oh, see what it took
To reclaim us all.
The Gift is given.
Nothing is withheld.
In this one small child,
Love Himself spoke
The final Word.
