Paper Heart

Decorate life with fragrant paper chain smiles

listen to distant echoes and fading laughter,

from the faces of the Magi (Wise Men) who raise their glasses

to the lives of before and after


Below the star carrying all hopes and wishes

there’s a spirit weathering olde world charm

delivering the faith from our infant desires

to be held in the warmth of his arms


Sing loud festive chorus with clarity of song

let everyone announce there’s peace on earth

this is the moment to release lifetime emotion

and drink a merriment of yuletide in verse


Love those dear, in times of intimate decrees

open old doors to those forgotten and past

celebrate Christmas with the people you love

as they unravel in your soft paper heart.
