Peace On Earth (Free Verse Sonnet)

It's strange how people around Christmas
and New Year does long for company,
long for the star of God to hang over them,
do again dust of the Bible and read the ancient story
of Mary pregnant from the Holy Spirit,
also try to catch the light and peace of His presence
and some are like small children scared
where their hearts are full of sin, guilt and fear
do come back to the Lord again
and no sheep or angels are necessary to experience
to find the man of Galilee,
to spend some time with Him,
where in great love He does forgive everything,
do cherish any person as His own, as His child.
