Jovial mood is in the air
Offers, gifts and perfumes
On a shopping spree,
Festivity is all around.
Christmas lights have been turned on
I look at them every day,
While walking down the streets
All by myself and cold.
In many different shapes
Of trees, candle or stars,
The lights remind me of happy faces of children,
Nevertheless a beacon of hope.
Rejoice and feel warm
Greetings flow on-
From handshakes, hugs even kisses.
Today no matter whether we are at peace
Or not, we’re happy and
Celebration is in the order;
Today is a day is to hold hands.
Yet, somewhere, not very far
Like darkness below a lamp,
A different world leaves in servitude
With no lights, food and warmth, whatsoever.
I wish to put on the lights on my porch too
Someday, but not now,
It won’t be my Christmas
Until all the dewdrops of tear fade.
