My Kind of Christmas
My Kind of Christmas
Can you imagine being here at 3A.M. and not even knowing what to write
Watching movies that flash upon my face, as I hold this candlelight
for the sake of my peers, my family and peace for the Human race
munching a homemade cookie since my stomach cannot wait
Being born like anybody else, I wanted the best toys my Lord!
Always a happy boy toward the end of December 24th
knowing that I would wake up to find a gift after past midnight
hoping to open a new game set, or a VHS movie where this Grinch stole the night
To this day, Our childhood was considered above and beyond
Charlie Brown and the cast from Peanuts made us feel at home
Before Cartoon Network we had Fred Flintstone and Top Cat
Around December, we wanted to adopt Lassie and the rest of her kind
If we didn't have the game of the day
we would invent according to our needs
Was easier to be happy, just kicking a ball or playing baseball
At times fishing with dad, swimming or watching the Superbowl
Times have changed with technology and euphoria on black Fridays
no time to remember the real meaning after all this madness
frenzy shopping and last minute buying
not a single dime for the poor that might be dying
My own decision came as a surprise
started writing past April before midnight
felt attracted and began to create from within
Today I have made so many friends that will follow my journey to the very end
My Christmas will be different for the first time
I have reached people with a lending hand
listening to those who where in need of a good advice
learning that we, after all, were born with this kindness inside
I wrote about the child inside of us
singles parents that maybe won't be able to trust
the math that this poor kid might need
the jokes that can make you laugh
Is the end of a prolific year and we feel blessed
promising ourselves to keep steady on this trek
gazing upon our own inspirations
that came today like a single header or title
My kind of Christmas is closing to a great end
tear drops here and there; not really about to cry...just
emotional myself signaling fulfilment deep inside
Glad for these words that wanted to come out
Appreciating those friends that have come to know us well
apologizing at times when we are on personal duty
We have expressed some commitment within ourselves
Not knowing how are we going to end, that's the beauty
Our sincere thoughts for all your families, dear friends
The words might keep coming, like a sensation with no end
Again, wanted to share these rambling thoughts
shaking a hand and knowing that at other side of the screen
we have shared and put out these words...
and seems like we accomplished something again!
Merry Christmas to all!
