Christmas 2019

It’s a rainy Christmas eve tonight here in Cebu, Philippines as a tropical storm has entered our country. It is a cold night but I’m thankful for my family and for the food on our table.

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it and happy holidays to the rest.

Dear Santa

It’s a little early, I know

But letters do travel a little slow

And I wanted to make sure you received this on time

So I’m also trying to make this interesting by doing a rhyme.

I appreciate you giving gifts to kids all over the world

And doing it all in one night is quite bold

But for this year, could you please include

Not just the young but also the old.

Not toys, necessarily

As they only bring joy momentarily.

If you could please hug those whose hearts have been broken

Those who thought no opportunity for them would be open.

Hug the one’s who lost someone

To help remove the frown

And save the milk and the cookie

To those who are in poverty.

Spread your ‘Ho, Ho, Ho’ and merriment

To those who has lost hope, be their testament.

Thank you, Santa for helping out

I know you’re going to do great, without a doubt.

Near Christmas

The lights flicker and glow

The time and the moment pass by slow

I watch the world busy itself

Put myself up on the shelf

I sit with a warm cup of coffee on hand

Looking at this beauty so grand

And then my thoughts drift to you

Wondering if your Christmas would still be blue

It’s near Christmas, I hope you feel the warmth.
