Generous the soul that gives
what little he possess
in such a manner shed a light
gave life’s gift away
~Some stories are easier to tell in prose~
There was a boy neither old nor young he had two little sisters.
He wasn’t strong nor was he weak but always a protector.
There came a season barren, cold his family had but little
warmth they always had, the holidays were special .
I’d known this boy about a year
a leader one day it was clear.
His challenges were plenty
disability one of many
bad was the year and business worse
our family agreed these children had worth.
Mine gathered from under the tree
they’d learned kindness and generosity
we took these gifts that Christmas Eve
Six children danced with joy and glee
That little boy looked to my son
eyes full of glimmers and fun
what he loved most with to play
A big heart he gave this thing away.
I remember Leon at this season
knowing his struggles had a reason
And with Leon, we celebrate the greatest gift giver of all times…
” For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Wishing a Merry Christmas to Family and Friends near and far!!!!
