Christmas Magic
     Hearts race, excitement mounts,
days counted down to this final moment.
     Coursing throughout my body is childlike glee,
strains of “White Christmas” drift melodically up to my ears.
     Eagerly throwing covers aside, racing down the stairs;
every bit as enamored, with the twinkling lights of beauty as when I was a child.
     Dad cooking Christmas breakfast, mom setting the table with special holiday china.
     Excitement, and memories of Christmas past;
encircle my family, enveloping us with love.
     Lively chatter; anticipation increases,
dishes gathered quickly, remains of our morning feast still evident,
all head towards the glowing tree.
     Happiness ensues amidst colorful bows, balled up pieces of tissue paper;
gift boxes strewn about in haste, as gifts are revealed.
     Hugs, kisses, words of thanks exchanged,
upon discovering treasures within brightly wrapped packages.
      Contentment fills the room,
family members pose for photographs,  arms linked as one.
     Christmas tunes play continually in the background,
creating picturesque moments forever captured in hearts.
     Smiles, good tidings, celebrating with loved ones,
moments unmatched, incomparable to any other!
