CHRISTMAS POEMS: “Candlelit heart”


“Candlelit heart”

Somewhere across the winter world tonight

you will be hearing chimes that fill the air,

Christmas extends its all-enfolding light

across the distance…something we can share.

You will be singing, just the same as I,

these familiar songs we know so well,

and you will see the same stars in your sky,

and I wish upon the brightest one that fell.



I shall remember you and trim my tree,

one shining star upon the topmost bough;

I will hang wreaths of faith that all may see

tonight I glimpse beyond the here and now.

And all the time that we must be apart,

I keep a candle in my heart.
