Posthumous poem- Merry Christmas, What Christmas Means to Me

Merry Christmas - What Christmas Means to Me

It is a time of year that people open their hearts.

It is a time of year when souls rejoice and play in the freedom of light.

It is a time of new beginnings and time to leave the past.

It is a time to forgive. Leaving fear behind.

It is a time to look forward.

It is a time for mankind everywhere to open their eyes wide to the fact that we are all here for a reason.

It is a time of year when people are able to love when they never could.

It is a most special time on this planet.

It is a time to rejoice, enjoy and be forever Thankful for the Loves in our hearts, Health and Freedom that we can be ourselves.

It is a time to be the best we can be!

My Mom taught me that the spirit of Christmas should be kept alive every day of the year.

This is also a beautiful reminder of that. Your brother has left an amazing legacy through the wisdom of his words, mar.
