Spread the Joy

 The Christmas spirit
enfolds me
something I can smell
touch and feel

I want to spread happiness
Share the love
Feel benevolent

I hum carols
whilst I work
Smile at strangers
Drop coins at buskers feet

I feel the joy of the season
Perform little kindnesses

Think about those I loved
long gone
Remembrance of times past
and thoughts of future

Sending gifts
to show I care
this midwinter ritual
this festival
that holds a special magic

to each and everyone
I try to spread the joy
