The Ageless Season

it’s a magical time of year

strangers nod and smile

even before sips of cheer

we breathe in the energy

the excitement, the anticipation

a sensed  not felt ordinarily

the joy of the children is contagious

full of hope and dreams

this spirit of the season is ageless.

celebrating birth with extra care

while battles with heartless vultures

to secure that perfect gift for our dear

despite the greedy siphoning our money

oh yes, we’ll cry later for today’s illusion

of a metaphorical day bright and sunny

we may take a moment to pause and cry

for the memories of love ones we lay to rest

and for those whose choose this year to die

a silent prayer for love ones near and far we miss

every season year after year the tears will cascade

our hearts forever will feel the melancholy bliss

Still it is . . . .

a magical time of year

strangers nod and smile

even before sips of cheer

we breathe in the energy

the excitement, the anticipation

a sensed  not felt ordinarily

the joy of the children is contagious

full of hope and dreams

this spirit of the season is ageless.
