My Kind of Christmas

Updated on December 18, 2016

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!

    Shimmering Dawn,

    Thanks for your comments; actually this phrased was inserted...just to make you think that you are not alone in this world, and if you can help someone by giving a little of what you can share,,,we can make a difference. If Bill Gates is doing it, why not us? Thanks again for your valuable comment.

    Lord,

    I have been truly blessed to have met so many wonderful writers on hubpages. Especially, you because you have made us all feel that what we write is important enough for you to take time to read it.

    If anyone had told me last year that I would be communicating with people online--whom I do not know--I would have laughed. But now I have enjoyed meeting and communicating with such special people--that being on Hubpages is my Christmas Gift to myself. And the special ones that I have met are the stars who shines the way for us all to write more, laugh more, and maybe cry a little.

    Merry Christmas to you Lord,

    Your Hub Friend,

    Bobbi
