Christmas Came Early



Christmas came early
Unsought, unexpected
Soft whispers, soft touchings

Christmas came early
A love unknown
A love discovered

Christmas came early
A peace undescribable
A peace dwelling deep

Christmas came early
A joy unspeakable
A joy overflowing

Christmas came early
A new future arises
No longer alone

This poem seems appropriate since I just learned that...YOU HAVE A GIRLFRIEND. Why did we not know this? :-)

I love bleeding hearts, and that is a beautiful picture of one.... Is that a Tim Rice poem? Very nice.....

Their color is almost in defiance of the dark. It must take quite a bit for their fragility to hold up against their surroundings.

Lovely picture.

Tim Rice said...
