Christmas through your eyes

Christmas through your eyes
Image Holidays are coming, holidays are coming...
Image Through my eyes...
These forums are a special place and a great help to many people, here we converge into an online community. It maybe cold outside, but inside we are warm because of the support we receive in our lives. So here's to the friends, family, and random people in our lives that help us get by and turn our frowns into smiles.

Whether you celebrate it or not, whether you're religious or not, Christmas is still a special time of year. Our City Centres get dressed up and we decorate our homes, we buy gifts and cards for each other, and most importantly we aim to spend more time together. So let's celebrate that, being together.

Image Through your eyes...
Write a poem about togetherness and community, about how those things are important at Christmas and the rest of the year. In the week before Christmas we're going to add a poll to this topic. Then, on Christmas day, we'll have a favourite poem. You can post as many poems as you like, just ensure you keep to the rules and regulations of the forums.

Image
Whether you celebrate it or not, here's wishing you a safe and positive Christmas time.

Christmas is coming
Geese are getting fat
Please tell Cliff Richard
That his new song is rubbish

Oh what a wonderful christmas with trees and fat men and snow
It's not great when ur toes go blue on a decmber day Glasgow
Oh I love Christmas It is very good
I hate the Queen's speech and Capitalism but I love the food

This Christmas will be a very nice one with cheese on toast by the fire
With the boxing day football and the rubbish films on tv which i quite admire
I love Frank Capra's it's a wonderful life
except the bit where the guy slits his ear with a knife

Christmas is good, Christmas is fine
Please get Stillian Petrov to stand on a landmine
I was only joking I just mildly despise him
But give me a sword and I shall smite him

I like Turkey - not the country but the bird
I also think Lulu is quite absurd
This is only the second English poem I was written
I have just realised I cant think of anything which rhymes with written

Oh Christmas is fantaastic and great
Where the bells ring and the Geese mate
Comedy specials on the telly
My trousers can no longer contain my belly

A poem by Vladimir
Last night I dreamt that somebody loved me.

Here we go!

Ok, here's mine (don't laugh, even though it's not as impressive as Vlad's!) it's better if you read it slow :-?

Have You Ever...? By me!

Have you ever seen a snowfall so pure and white,

That you felt that if you were to tread on it, it would be lost forever?

Have you ever stood on a path, and really listened to the sound of the wind in the air,

as snowflakes twirl around your head?

Have you ever held your loved ones at christmas and thought

"i'm lucky just to be here?"

Have you ever said "thank you" for gifts you have been given,

or realised how the simple gifts in life are always the most important of all?

Have you ever dined as poor as a peasant, but still felt as full as a king?

Or been happy just to live life, no matter what troubles life may bring?

Have you ever held the hand of a cranky old man,

As he tells you about happiness lost,

Festive cheer missed....?

Or that all through the years, he forgot about christmas?

Have you ever paused in your happiness, to reflect on what you do,

And pray that one day, that scrooge won't be you...?


Oh, by the way - hope this ain't cheating but it's just a poem that i wrote before, and kind of changed to make it slightly christmassy lol... I hate christmas really!

It took me ages to come up with that masterpiece
Last night I dreamt that somebody loved me.

Many thanks to Ray Boltz for the idea.

Watch the Lamb

I stood with my youngest son
On a hillside by the way
Our flock of sheep were grazing
At the closing of the day

We settled down by fire bright
Our backs ached with pain
But we watched our little flock
To ensure that none were slain

Then suddenly, from the darkness
There shone so bright a light
An angel host from heaven
Came down into our sight

We stood back in amazement
My knees were numb with fear
The angel then spoke to us
His words rang loud and clear

"Behold, for unto you this day
Is born in Bethlehem
The Saviour, King of kings,
The only Great I Am"

"Find the babe, you will
In a stable by the way
Wrapped in torn rags
And in a manger lay"

"Glory to God in the highest
And Peace unto all men"
They sang, then vanished
We ne'er saw them again

I gazed into my son's eyes
And knew just what to do
We must needs go and see this babe
He was the Messiah, I knew

My son asked me plainly
'But daddy, the lamb?"
He held the little sheep up
"Son, watch...the lamb"

We headed out to Bethlehem
The other flock left behind
We headed for the stable
Beneath the star that shined

As we came upon the shelter
A young girl we saw inside
She bent over a wooden trough
It was there the Saviour lied

We came closer to the light
And I saw his shining face
He smiled at up at me
A babe of my own race

My heart felt at peace just then
My burdens fell away
As I knew the Messiah had come
And I felt the need to pray

I smiled as I gazed at him
But my son pulled at my coat
Tears poured down his face
And I softly touched his throat

"Daddy daddy, I'm sorry
But the little lamb ran away"
I tried to think of someting
To ease him from dismay

Then I looked back to the babe
And in my mind I saw the lamb
In a reverant voice I said,
"Son...watch...The Lamb"

The wait for that perfect someone may be long and painful, but the payoff lasts even longer, and is the most painless thing in the world.
