The mall is packed
Sleigh bell sound
Children look in wonder
The decorations abound

Glee in their young faces
Cookie crumb and hot chocolate traces
Santa's helpers stationed for wrapping
Festive boxes, bags, with holiday tags

In the midst
Nat King Cole croons
St. Nick is on his way
It’s a magical, glorious, reflective day

Just days before
Angels are ready to soar
The heavens with Joy
Stay in that inner space
Don't let anything put you out of place

Days after
We can still celebrate
The beauty and greatness of his birth
Whatever day he actually came to earth
Was well worth

Goodwill, Love, Family, Friends
Community & communion
Days before, there were over-packed stores
In the midst of this, don’t forget to cherish the moment
Embrace the feeling
Touch another with a call, text, card, or note

Tis the season
Love and compassion are great gifts
Christ's birth is a connected and heartfelt reason
As one walks through the malls, for 1 final call
Sips a Holiday drink
Laughs with a family member

Hugs a cherished friend
In person or just in heart
Shares a meal with another who can't give back
Dry a tear, comfort a soul

Hold the memory
Bittersweet to unfold
Listen to the faint sounds, smells, tastes, and feel of Christmas time

It’s all around
Engulf yourself with the spirit
Immerse with the melody, harmony, let music abound

Feel of Christmas time
We should keep its sound
In every home, in every soul, meeting every need
Let love, joy, peace be found
