Gifts of Christmas

So many things
that come and go
we might not see
as children grow.
Time moves on
leaving memories
found as echoes
of Christmas trees.
Life's a doorway
swinging true
giving a moment
a single view.
I remember the
kids next door
that came to play
the times before.
I now look out
and give a smile
thankful for
that little while.
The season gives
a special glimpse
heartbeats beating
so immense.
Then the moments
time to time
live as gifts
within our mind.
Gifts of Christmas
can bestow
the love of God
as winter snow.
