Christmas Day

Christmas day

can you hear the bells ring

sitting around the Christmas tree

may you have a merry time

being a part of a family

may each gift bring joy

let the season of good will

bring love into your home

as the neighbours come round

or seeing close friends

greeting loved ones

let this time never end

the festivities have just begun

food is on the table

wine is being poured

crackers are pulled

best wishes bestowed upon all

flying ducks

flying ducks

over the sea

like arrows

parting the skies

they know where they are going

we should follow them

to distant lands

there we shall have another life together

a dream to unfold

a beacon of hope

where we all rejoice

at last we have found our home 

Sparrow

sparrow fly away home

of all life’s desires

be the one

who holds dear

what life leaves behind for us

a shining star

in the vast cosmos

when all love is lost

be the spark

to reunite the two halves

bring back all light

banish the darkness

believe in oneself 

a guiding force of nature
