Yuletide Wish (Christmas Poetry)
This Yuletide wish
For friendship and fun
From an Antipodean
Son of a gun.
Is sent to all my Hubber friends,
With love and gratitude,
For your encouragement
From 30 degree S latitude.
May your Christmas be joyful
And all wishes come true.
May angels watch over you
And Santa Claus too.
But amidst all the presents
And celebration this season,
Please acknowledge our saviour
As Christmas' true reason.
Do you always have a white Christmas?See results without voting
Wish Him Merry Christmas
Hear the jingle of the bells,
Holly decks the halls,
A Christmas tree with sparkling lights,
And tinsel on the walls.
To see the presents brightly wrapped
makes my Christmas sad.
There's one for Tom, and Mom, and me,
But not a one, marked 'Dad'.
My Daddy's gone away you see,
He isn't coming home.
Mom said he's got another life,
But I'm sure he is alone.
Dad misses us, I know he does,
He told me on the phone.
But Mommy doesn't want him back,
She said "The bird has flown".
I wrote to Santa Claus last night,
And scribbled on my pad,
"I don't want any other gifts,
Just please bring back my Dad."
"But if you can't convince him,
And apart we must remain,
Then wish him "Merry Christmas",
From his loving daughter, Jane.

One of my darker pieces of writing and social commentary on religion, people's morals, hypocritical attitudes, and murder.
I hope this poem inspires and encourages people to be the change they want in the world. To treat everyone with love and respect, to fight against greed and corruption, and always think positive.
A recent event has reinvigorated my faith in God and that he really is watching over us. Some may call it mere coincidence, but I believe it is much more.
