(727) Christmas Past

Oh happy days, the snow fell over-night,
we have a white Christmas in our sight.
Only a few more days and nights,
Christmas will shine bright of white.

Remember those beautiful Christmas Eves,
when we gathered round our colorful trees.
Remember when we caroled down the street,
sang Christmas songs oh so sweet.

Memories are precious let’s not forget,
don’t do anything you might regret.
Christmas is the time of year to share,
to treasure family far and near.

This Christmas with the lights shining bright,
reflecting God’s blanket of white.
Sing sweet songs in memory,
past Christmas’s history.

((727) Christmas Past by Melvina Germain.) … Remember those beautiful Christmas Eves, _______________________________ **Reflections and celebration.
I like it. nice rhyming. when do I get my gift? ? ? as a kid, I was lucky enough to not only have gifts to unwrap, but also a “stocking”, and it was really ‘hung by the chimney with care’.! ! it was great to delve into the deep cavity retrieving edible and an inedible treats. but snow and lights and singing was also nice! you (I guess) and I are privileged to have pleasant memories of Christmases past. bri to MyPoemList :)
'Remember those beautiful Christmas Eves, when we gathered round our colorful trees. Remember when we caroled down the street, sang Christmas songs oh so sweet.' loved the rhythm joy life infused into this poem especially in the stanza above 'Memories are precious let’s not forget, don’t do anything you might regret. Christmas is the time of year to share, to treasure family far and near.' loved the honouring of family and values in the last quoted stanza, beautiful verse Melvina :)
