Christmas Angel

by Shea Ryhai © 2009

*

Darkened skies shed frozen tears

onto the world below.

A blackened Christmas now appears

beneath the white of snow.

The shining stars all fade away,

they feel no joy tonight.

An Angel kneels down as she prays

to fill the world with light.

*

A selfish mass no longer feels

too used to hate and pain.

Its truth lies hidden, unrevealed

advertised only for gain.

Santa Clause and Christmas trees

and discounts at the store.

The Angel looks but does not see

the gift she's looking for.

*

Some Carolers sing Silent Night,

the words have all been changed.

Instead of smile they mostly fight

the Angel finds this strange.

No one has time to pray for peace

as honking horns drive by.

The Angels face does not look pleased

she flies into the sky.

*

The Church is decked with Christmas lights

it's halls are filled with food.

But so many wallets still filled tight

the Angel finds this rude.

The Food Drive box holds 4 small cans

of corn and lentil soup.

The Angel tries to understand

but her wings begin to droop.

*

She walks away from all the noise,

the lights and hateful words.

Kids only care for Christmas toys

the others mock her Lord.

She sinks beneath the quiet snow

a tear trails down her face.

And prays for all the souls below

who've wandered far from grace.

*

A single star lights up the night

to touch the Angel's wings.

And in that star she finds the light

so the Angel softly sings.

“May the World be blessed with Love,

and may they remember still.

Their Christ and Savior up above,

who for their sins was killed.”
