Christmas Poem VII: “Maybe It Will Snow”

Every year, I write a poem for Christmas, and include it in my Christmas cards to friends and family. For the days leading up to Christmas, I’m publishing all of my Christmas poems here, as a kind of Advent calendar.

Today’s poem was written in 1998, when I was a student at seminary.  

Maybe it will snow on Christmas
And maybe it won’t
Maybe you believe in the Christ child
And maybe you don’t
Maybe you’ll visit with family
And maybe you can’t
Maybe I’ll see you on that day
And maybe I shan’t

Maybe Christmas is future
The hope that loving will last
Or maybe it’s the remembrance
Of joys from the past
But Christmas has magic
So easily felt
The hope and the memories
Make our frozen hearts melt

I wish for you this Christmas
The greatest of light –
That the mystery of Christmas
Will make your spirit bright
