'Adorning The Tree Of Remembrance' is a tribute, a wish, a blessing and an homage to memories of this special season. Happy holidays to all !

.....May
....you never
....forget the good.
....May you remember,
...always, the great!  May
...you do so in love.  May you
...do so in health.  May you do so in
....humility.  May you do so in gratitude.
...May you remember joy as joy.  May the
...bright colors of the season illuminate peace
...within your spirit.  May the private corner of your
..love-shared heart be a temple for which a meaningful
..life shall always remain the finest tribute.  May tomorrow, and
the many morns of new promise, be ever mindful of the
cherished beauty that has gone before.  Mortal seed
has been sown within eternity's domain, and the
telling of that scattering:  Of friendship, of love
and of life, will yet be long, and glorious.
A life lived well, and kindly, is like
the original Christmas:
A gift
given,
and
giving
always.

A beautiful poetic tree to see and read.
That's all what billions of us need:
Good, Great, Love, Health, Gratitude, Joy, Peace and more
And the Christmas tree symbolizes them all.

Life is a gift, ...if we are lucky enough to have the luxury of time and a comfortable insight to enjoy it in some part. A green tree in the wintertime is a good reminder of that gift, during the harshest time of the year (for the northern hemisphere!). Glad you liked the poem, Harry...
