Christmas Blessing

by Harshita Das aged 11

We grin and laugh
Happily, on Christmas Eve
Exchanging presents
Tokens of love
Being passed around
In the smallest manner
From the smallest rose
Even the Almighty King
Expresses his love
Not by gifts bought with gold
Not with beauty, pride and gifts
But by giving us capacity to learn
The ability to love
Showing us share and care
So let us embrace what we have
And respect what others are
For we are alike, no matter how different
Black or white
Short or tall
All share a common ground
For we all are the beloved creations
Of the Almighty
And let us embrace
The Christmas blessing
