On the holy eve peace
comes upon us for the
new day to follow the
holy evening brings celebration
of the birth of peace.
May the new day’s focus
not purely be on the materials
but the love brought to us, a love
to guide the life we lead.
Materials are short lived and
the food indulged soon forgotten.
If a bit of Christmas remained
in our heart’s each waking day,
the world will be a more peaceful
