Here’s a Christmas Card to Everyone

 

Peace on this Christmas Day

"Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh, Christmas Tree..."

“Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh, Christmas Tree…”

On this Christmas Day…as the hurriedness of the holiday starts to unwind…

I look high towards the heavens…I see all the stars out that shine.

I find on this new day…”Peace” that I have not had all year…

I look to all the quiet houses nearby…”Peace” has come…it’s clear !

The kids are still asleep…and my wife is wrapping one last gift…

But…I am in another place…as my thoughts and spirit drift.

Longing for a time…when folks can all gather at one table…as sister and brother…

Longing for a time…when all mankind…don’t fight amongst each other…

Searching in my mind to find continued “Peace” throughout my days here…

Searching for “Peace” to go on and on…not only at this time…each year.

Looking into the night of this day…Christmas Eve has passed…Christmas day has arrived.

Thoughts and Dreams of “Peace”…have found a home…and once inside…have thrived.

Hey…I Even Got Ya’ A Gift For Christmas:

The Song Below is My Christmas Gift to You…”Peace To You This Christmas”

“Song of Peace”, Up With People, Cast E 1982, Boston Pops

Oh…of Christmas…Welcome here…Thank you for this blessing…

Oh…of Christmas…Sing for Joy…”A Song of Peace”…I am addressing.

Christmas is special to the little ones…Christmas lives in the heart of a young child…

Where all the World is happy…a picture in each of their minds of “Peace”…is filed.

And in turn each little one…shows us the way…

“Peace” is not hard to imagine…Look how it arrived here…on this very day.

In the Quiet Stillness of of a Few Happy Homes Around…I peer outside my home through the glass…

Glad to see this day has come…Smiling of what it brings…Hoping it will be slow to pass.

On this Christmas Day…I know that for today…my heart can rest in wonderful joy…

Thinking back of what this day has done for me…Looking past…just being a child opening a toy.

Seeing well beyond the rooftops of each families home…across my neighborhood…

Seeing that Wonderful “Peace” has reigned down…Soaking each house…with nothing but good.

I’m Thankful for a World that harkens to the door of a new Christmas day…and Welcomes it in…

For the “Peace” that all could find…Brought to us with the “Joy” that visits us once again.

This pic is for my wife...she loves this kind of thing...Merry Christmas, Darling !
This pic is for my wife…she loves this kind of thing…Merry Christmas, Darling !

May the Joy of this Holiday…Fill your Mind with renewed Hope and Vigor…

I raise my glass to you, my friend…Eggnog…with a touch of liquor…

“Peace”…Is my wish for you…and when that runs out…I wish you even more…

You want some “Peace”…I’ll have it shipped right out to you…and sent to your front door !

It is not really too hard to obtain…Look All Around…There Is Plenty Here Tonight…

Oh…for “Peace” to reign down forever and always…A Pretty Good Prayer…I must say…Ya’ Know, Right?

Yet, this day will come…as it has…and leave…as it will do…in a very short while…

Know that my heart…Wishes you “Peace” Always…I do so in natural “Manly Poetry Man” style.

So…find your glass….and raise it high…Let’s celebrate to “Peace” that has come this year…

1, 2, 3…Let’s all join in a Toast: “Here’s Peace to you!”…And Shout it for All the World to Hear !

See…That wasn’t so hard for us people to do…Really…Maybe we can all come together soon and find…

That True “Peace” was there all Along…Stuck in the Back Corner of each Person’s Mind.

Christmas brings the wonders and magic…that we have all come to know…

Like a view of a distant and remote little Village…all covered White with Snow…

Where busy town folk people rush home to warm-up by their fireplace…with a warm glow…

And share Thoughts and Dreams…with each other…As the Mountains and Stars watch them below.

Christmas brings the hope of a child…that us older ones have need of…to be re-taught…

The simple things…and the gifts everyone brings…and all the goodies that folks have brought…

Will all come to mind inside each little one’s head…and teach each one things…older ones have soon for-got…

We can all smile in “Joy” as a child does…this Christmas…”Peace” has returned…The “Peace” for which we sought.

"Peace To You This Christmas" from Houston, Texas
“Peace To You This Christmas” from Houston, Texas
                              “Peace” has returned…The “Peace” for which we sought.
"Christmas brings the hope of a child...that us older ones have need of."
“Christmas brings the hope of a child…that us older ones have need of.”

Yet, with all I’ve said…I know in my heart…a Christ child was born on this day…

True “Peace” this child came to Earth to bring to you…It may be hard to believe…in what I say.

For a World of Thoughts and all kinds of folks…think things…One way or the other…It is so very True.

Examine the careful words this Christ child said when he was older…That is all I would ask you to do.

For of all the “Peace” I have…from Singing a “Song of Peace”…and from this Season…

Can’t compare to the “Peace” that he has brought to my Life…..For my “Peace”…He is the Reason.

On this Christmas Day…What I Really Keep Wanting…Most To Say…

Is “Peace” is Where You Find It…”Peace” is the Best Gift for Anyone to Give Away.

Yes…”Peace” Has Come To My House On Christmas…So One Time More I Say “Peace” To You, My Friend…

From My House To Yours…I Want To Wish “Peace” to Everyone…and a very “Merry Christmas To All”…The End.

 

 

From my House to Yours: "Peace and Joy!"

From my House to Yours: “Peace and Joy!”

 

Have a Very Merry Christmas...Full of Peace and Joy!

Have a Very Merry Christmas…Full of Peace and Joy! 

Peace on this Christmas Day !
