Hymns and Dark Chocolate

Feeling the Faith and Love at Christmas. For the Blogmas Christmas Contest.

Dark chocolate simmering on the stoves.
White snowflakes painting the trees.
Colored lights wrapping around the windows.
A child savoir born to make man and woman free.

And you hear the old hymns coming from a manger;
the long desire of a traveling stranger:

“Your Spirit, One touch.
Panacea.
Your voice, I heard.
Panacea.
My faith, You Lit.
Panacea.
My Heart, Your Love.
Panacea.”

And as the night slowly drifts away.
You’re awakened by the cares of the day:

I’m so broke, it’s not even funny.
I can’t afford the weather when it’s sunny.
My pockets have holes – they’re leaking all of my money
and I still have to buy a gift for my hunny!

But still, it’s Christmas and I remember:

The money comes and goes.
Presents, I’ll forget.
But we’ll build bridges to our hearts, love,
and that’s as good as it gets.

Merry Christmas Everyone! I’ll end with a quote from one of the most memorable Christmas movies!

“No man is a failure who has friends.”
[Mark Twain, and also] Clarence, “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

This poem is actually a combination of three of my favorite poems that I’ve written over the past couple months.

It was submitted to KaylaAnn’s Blogmas Contest. Be sure to check it out and maybe even join!
