I read this poem today by Win Rainer


What have they done to Christmas, do we know?
Round the shops, like mad we go,
That special feeling, long since gone
In it's place, high business, and its wrong,
Excitement and glitter, false in its way
After Christmas much misery, many bills to pay,
Can they not ever understand?
That money cannot buy Christmas in our land,
Down the wrong road they are going
Sad but true, not even knowing,
Try to make it's meaning, loud and clear
A very special time of year!

Here is one more I have to write. Another poem by Win Rainer a former Japanese POW, a very wise man.Sadly to say, he passed away in 2009. May he rest in peace.

 All our Christmases!

Think of those less fortunate than you
Just imagine what people, without do,
The heartache of those with nothing to give
A despair in the way they have to live,
Little do they know, the priceless gift of Love
It's purity of thought is far above,
The value of things money can buy
Is not the true reason where life lies.
To all my family and friends,Have a merry Christmas!

Peace on Earth!
