CHRISTMAS CAME ONE YEAR
by Anita Patricia Chandradatt
Christmas is celebrated once a year,
to some every day,
Christmas came into my life
one night and will forever stay.
The happiness I once remembered
had somehow no longer existed,
However, when Christmas came into my life that night
a promise was sealed with a kiss.
The innocent smile so cheerfully displayed
had faded throughout the years,
But Christmas came into my life one night
and replaced those smiles behind camouflaged tears.
Gifts brought forth for a treasured soul
were hidden imitations from the heart,
Because when Christmas came into my life that night
a true treasure was displayed from the start.
