A twinkling light shone through the trees’ sway
It was strangely enticing
I tried to resist
If I failed to return
Would I even be missed?
And so onward I went, each foot deep in snow
Yet the light kept retreating as if telling me “no”
I don't understand!
I screamed through the dark
I’ve been walking for hours!
Yet my feet had left no mark
It was true; behind me the path smooth as cream
I wondered aloud, am I trapped in a dream?
Then a voice spoke out
So gentle and clear
The light which you seek
Is clouded by fear
Before me a glow of such brightness I fell
Look inside, my child; you’ve a story to tell
A story? But no one listens to me.
To all those who search for a light from above
My message through you is simple
Go forth in love
Be a beacon for others and you’ll not lack a friend
For no light burns brighter than that from within
There is nothing to fear
That you don’t self-create
Choose faith over darkness
Love over hate
May the light that is Christmas burn bright in your heart all through the year. Merry Christmas, my friends.
