Christmas Always

What will Christmas be like

when it’s all said and done

and the church bells fall silent

as the world continues on

oblivious to the darkened doors

of was once the lighted Cathedral

now a shell holding only ghosts

memories of candles lit and music sung

lost in the noise of the streets.

What will Christmas be like

as we bury whats left of faith

along with the hopes and dreams

of souls in faded photographs

hanging on the cracked walls

of the emptiness that lingers.

What will Christmas be like?

The infant will be born

and hope will enter the world

and light will shine in broken hearts

love will endure and in the silence

we will hear the Word spoken to all
