A Poem to Conclude the Christmas Season

Come Into My Heart

Yes, Christ Child come into my heart,

open me up to see you in the manger

and see that simplicity.

Open me up to see

your gift of trust,

your gift of abandonment,

your gift of hope and joy.

Yes, Christ Child come into my heart,

again this Christmas,

so that with Mary & Joseph

I may prepare a room for you

as small as my heart and as big as the world

so I may ponder all you fill my life with

and embrace you more and more.

Yes, Christ Child come into my heart,

so I may be filled with wonder and awe

like the shepherds and magi,

so I may give praise to you for all your goodness,

so I may be strengthened to build the kingdom,

so I may proclaim:

God is With Us Always until the End of Time!

Yes, Christ Child come into my heart,

Oh Christ Child you have come again… Thank You!
