“The True Meaning of Christmas” by Brian Walters


Christmas 40

The True Meaning of Christmas ~ A Poem by Brian Walters

In today’s day and time,
it’s easy to lose sight
of the true meaning of Christmas
and one special night.

Amidst the tinsel and glitter
of ribbons of gold,
we forget about the child
born on a night so cold.

When we go shopping
we ask “How much will it cost?”
Then the true meaning of Christmas
somehow becomes lost.

The children look for Santa
and his big red sleigh
and forget about the child
whose bed was made of hay.

In reality, when we look
into the night sky
we don’t see a sleigh
but a star burning bright and high.

A faithful reminder
of that night so long ago
and the child called Jesus
whose love the world would know.
