                MARY’S DREAM

One evening up there in those heavens of blue,
Mary dreamed a dream when Christmas was due.
She said softly to her husband, “oh Joseph my dear,
Last night I had a dream that was so visually clear.”

“It was a birthday celebration for our only son,
People’s faces were lit as though a prize they had won.
For weeks they’d been preparing for this wonderful day
And had invited family & friends from places far away.”

“Much shopping had been done for presents quite rare,
Some wonderful goodies that all there might share.
It was peculiar tho’ Joseph, tho’ they were all having fun,
Those presents were not intended for our beloved Son.”

“Beautiful presents in fancy paper and ribbons were placed
Beneath a bright Christmas tree with a great show of haste.
Sparkling tinsel and lights adorned that green Xmas tree
With a glowing figure on the apex like an angel might be.”

“Every one was so happy as the presents were exchanged
But none were for Jesus  which to me seemed quite strange.
That they were thinking of Jesus, I think the chances were slim,
For I think many that were present did not even know him.”

“To celebrate someone’s birthday, it certainly seems odd
When no one even mentioned his name or spoke about God.
I had the strangest feeling Joseph that if Jesus went there
That somehow he’d be intruding, which hardly seems fair.”

“While all the folks gathered seemed so hail and so hearty,
It was sad Jesus wasn’t welcome at his own birthday party.
I know it was only a dream Joseph but how would we feel
That if somehow or other it turned out to be real.”

                                                    I wish all my friends at PIP a wonderful Xmas and a safe and happy new year.  God bless you all.   Lindsay P Wilson.

Lindsay! You're back! ~ and with a of a poem, to boot! ~ Might I add, my sentiments as well!

So often the true meaning of Christmas gets lost in all the hubbub of the season.

Loved the poem ~ and you!!!

Your friend,
Linda

~ and wishing you and your family the merriest of Christmases and a most joyful new year!

P.S. I loved your book "Verse for Everyone"!!!

Interesting thoughts here...for even in the days when Jesus walked this Earth, some cared for Him and some were determined to crucify Him...James

Hi Lindsay old mate, great to see you back here again my friend, you have been missed for the last couple of weeks. Great story you weave here and how true the content, I think that most of us feel some guilt after reading your post, the holiday clouds the meaning I think. Anyhow, very much enjoyed and glad to see you back.

Rick

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours Lindsay, be well and take care.

Very beautiful and thought provoking write, dear Lindsay.
I agree with you, the truest meaning of Christmas sometimes is totally overlooked.

Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones. Thank you!

Love,
Margherita

It doesn`t have to be Christmas for readers to understand the important message that you want to impart to them.  A splendid poem!
