HOLD TIGHT

Christmas is a time
for joyful hearts and hopeful eyes,
as we reflect on times past
and look forward to surprise.
 
Put aside petty squabbles
and pointless vendetta's
and ask ourselves truly,
are we really no better?
 
Spread out your arms
with a welcoming smile
and defy all the ones
who seek to defile.
 
A moment of bliss
so heartily felt,
surrender to the moment
and let your heart melt.
 
This may be the last time,
for though we pretend,
we really don't know
when our journey will end.
 
The blink of an eye
is all it can take
for a flame to burn out
and a warm heart to break.
 
So grab that moment
with both of your hands,
and hold on so tight,
let you love expand.
 
To cover one and all
with a blanket so warm,
go out of your way
to keep them from harm.
 
Hold them so tight
and hold them so near,
never let go
of the ones you hold dear.
 
Face a future together
with no shadow of fear.
Have a Merry Christmas
and a loving new year.
