Not everyone enjoys Christmas; many are alone, lonely, and blue. This poem suggests a way to convert the blues into sparkle.

Christmas spirit lives within

Let the Christmas sparkle begin.

 

This time each year

many have the blues

alone they are

alone they choose

It's hard to shake

the blues they feel

no room for change

the struggle is real

 

Christmas spirit lives within

Let the Christmas  sparkle begin

 

Reach out to a stranger

give them more than a smile

maybe a meal

or a chat for a while

Pick out somebody

give them a gift

It's not just for them,

because you'll feel the lift.

 

Christmas spirit lives within

Let the Christmas sparkle begin

 

Reach way down into your soul

discover something new

release the bondage of your self

you'll feel lighter that is true

Focused on another frown

determined to make it smile

Ignites a sparkle deep within

That lasts a good long while

 

Christmas spirit lives within

Let the Christmas sparkle begin

This is so beautiful. And as someone who has gone through lonely Christmases in the past years, I know what it feels like. Which is why it's super important to at least try to make others smile on this day, because you never know who might need the love.

Thank you for your lovely poem, and Merry Christmas!
