Christmas Eve

"Somewhere across the winter world tonight 
you will be hearing chimes that fill the air;
Christmas extends its all-enfolding light
Across the distance....something we can share.
You will be singing, just the same as I,
These familiar songs we know so well.
I shall remember you and trim my tree,
One shining star upon the topmost bough;
I will hang wreaths of faith that all may see--
Tonight I glimpse beyond the here and now.
And all the time that we must be apart
I keep a candle in my heart."

Candle-lit heart by M.E. Linton
