The True Meaning of Christmas

Brian K. Walters

In today's day and time,

it's easy to lose sight,

of the true meaning of Christmas

and one special night.


When we go shopping,

We say "How much will it cost?"

Then the true meaning of Christmas,

Somehow becomes lost.


Amidst the tinsel, glitter

And ribbons of gold,

We forget about the child,

born on a night so cold.


The children look for Santa

In his big, red sleigh

Never thinking of the child

Whose bed was made of hay.


In reality,

When we look into the night sky,

We don't see a sleigh

But a star, burning bright and high.


A faithful reminder,

Of that night so long ago,

And of the child we call Jesus,

Whose love, the world would know.
