There’s nothing like the
crinkle of wrapping paper
as I grab the sticky tape
to seal down one end
and then the other,
turn it over
write words on some paper
and seal it with a kiss.
or a few kisses xxx
that’s when christmas comes into my heart
not the carols,
not the tree
not the specials on prawns and plums
no, it’s none of that,
it’s not even there while i’m scanning my card
time after time
in shop after shop.
except for the sound of paper, and the screech
of the tape dispenser as i cut off
to you and yours
i wish you all in the world, but nothing but peace.
I’m feeling very sensitive tonight, tears in my eyes as I feel the love for my family, my friends, those that have passed, and those who are near yet no longer so close. Tears for the slight ache of loneliness. I feel all your love. Those that are lonely, cold, hungry, sad, full of despair and grief. tonight of all nights I feel your pain.I’m feeling you all tonight, and I feel so blessed to be so open to all the emotions of life.
peace on earth, goodwill to all.
