Seventeen angels all in a row looking at earth down below
Seventeen angels who didn’t stand a chance
Against a gunman’s steady advance.
their lives taken in their prime , and not knowing the reason Why .
Seeing the pains of their family and friends and praying
For change that will make this end.
Columbine . Sandy Hook, Las Vegas ,and now Parkland
We as citizens have to take a stand.
Raising the age limit may slow it down , but automatic
Weapons can still be found.
Automatic weapons should be banned
With single shot guns and rifles we hunted and defended this land.
How many more lives must be taken ?
Before the politicians are awakened.

I forgot to tell you “I love you “ and you died in an accident today
And this pain in my heart will never go away.
Everything is taken for granted in our daily lives , that we tend
To ignore the beauties of our wives.
You are my soul mate . My shining star at night and thru the
Bitter arguments and the fussing and the fights.
You are the one who completes me and made me what I am today
And now you are gone and to you I do pray.
In my sleep I reach across the bed searching for your hand
But it’s no longer there and hard to understand.
Why didn’t I tell you “I love you “ on that day
And this pain will stay forever and will never go away.
If you have a loved one “ then tell them every day just how
Much you love them “ before time slips away .

SANTA ! I don’t want gifts underneath the Christmas tree
All I want is a loving family.
A family that I can call my very own and feel that I belong.
There are so many of us here where I stay
And every night we all kneel to pray.
I want loving arms to hold me when I am in pain
Not abuse me and make me feel ashamed.
We are not bad kids – we’ve just been abandoned and abused
And for many adults we have no use.
SANTA ! We are not different from others
We want a family with sisters and brothers.
I know you don’t have a family in your Christmas bag
But if you did , I’d be so glad.
Maybe you could leave a note on all the stockings tonight
“ adopting a child would be a Christmas delight “
From a kid who believes in you !

It’s been a while since I’ve been here
It’s time to spread good will and cheer
There is so much gloom in the world today
And many have forgotten how to pray
With family and friends we are no longer in touch
Because of fires , earthquakes , hurricanes and such .
With that in mind I’ll make some time
To say a prayer for yours and mine.
Christmas is remembering what we do have
Not what we lost , so our problems
To the wind we must toss.
Now is the time to get up off your ass
You cannot change whets already past .
So teach the children about the birth of CHRIST
And all he had to sacrifice. By giving up his life
So that we could live – more than that he could not give!
He was but a child when the three kings appeared
Creating gift giving , good will and good cheer.
Centuries have passed since this took place
And it has spread from race to race.
No matter what struggles come our way
But for now let the children play.
( show the children the true meaning of Christmas
And never take CHRIST out of Christmas )

You can feel the magic in the air , it’s the Christmas
Spirit that’s everywhere.
Thanksgiving is gone and the mad rush has begun
With Black Friday sales for everyone.
Your children’s eyes are open wide , hoping to get that big surprise.
Bicycles , skateboards , roller blades and more
Electronic games . Xboxes and PS4
Yet some still hold on to days of old when children played in the cold.
Waiting for that first snowfall to build a snowman and have a snowball fight
This was the children’s delight .
Getting your sled and taking it to the top of the hill
and sliding all the way down – “was such a thrill” .
And in the city or in the suburbs , the sounds of the children’s laughter
Was all that was heard.
Where children would walk by your side greeting others
With a “ hello “ or “ hi “ and wishing everyone a a “ Merry Christmas “
And a “happy new year “ and walking the streets without any fears.
Time does not stand still and things must change, but children
Should not be in the house playing some games.
“ bring back days of old Christmas “

What is Christmas without family , without presents underneath the tree
What is Christmas without faith , hope and love
Given to us from the Lord up above.
What is Christmas without the smiles and joys
Of the children playing with their toys.
When your mind is empty and not a memory to be found
And you feel like your dreams are laying on the ground.
This is the time that you look at the world thru the
Eyes of every boy and girl.
The spirit of a child is an everlasting light that reminds you
Of another child s sacrifice.
This vision was seen by three kings from afar who traveled
To where he was by following a star.
The gifts they gave was the start of something new
And to this day the tradition has followed through.
It is called Christmas- Christ – Mas – meaning more of Christ !
What is Christmas ?
It is different for everyone ! But for me it’s the birth of GODS SON .
