SEASON OF BEAUTY
It isn’t the twinkle of lights in the city that brighten the holiday season,
It is the smiles and gestures of charity from you that give the days their meaning.
It isn’t the songs that bring out the joy on the lips of all the people,
It is the words of kindness that you are spreading that creates a joyful ripple.
It isn’t the food, cookies, or nog warming the hearths of the homes,
But rather the touch of a friend, or a hug that shows them they’re not alone.
It isn’t shoppers who bustle about, that create the atmosphere and energy,
It is the quiet connection of hearts and giving that melts the frost in the air.
I have a part, and you have a part, in bringing the season to life.
It is our union of spirit and not our religions that actually fuels the light.
It is the love in our hearts that we’re willing to share that creates a sense of community.
Believe you can spread the light and the love and we’ll all have a season of beauty.
