My Yuletide Wish
I want unconditional love to touch all hearts
planting seeds in darkness to grow apart
and all those in darkness to see the light
all those in pain to find peace in the night.
I want all those who have no place to call home
those who have no shelter for lonely cold bones
to be offered a chance to feel the desire
of sitting with family in front of the Yule fire.
I want all peoples on this planet of blue
to find love in their souls and kindness too.
Compassion for all life shouldn't we share
with the lions, the tigers, the birds and the bears?
May those without enough find what they need
I wish for them enough to nurture the seed
from green shoot, to bud, to full blossom flower
and may they find enough in their final hour.
