Christmas A Long Time Ago

by Jennifer Molloy  
12/19/2012 / Poetry

Christmas a long time ago...

On a cold winters night as I sit in the barn
and think of a Christmas a long time ago

shutting my eyes back through the
ages I go

And see the couple move forward on a donkey as white as the

Round the back of an Inn the man now did pause peering out through
the darkness his way lit by a star

A slit of light appeared from under
the door, a welcome sight for the two who had travelled so far

floods his body as the nudge of his donkey urges him on

The words no room
at the Inn are all but gone

The smell of sweet hay welcomes them

And the process of birth soon starts to begin

He holds her hand
and tenderly wipes her brow

Thinking God please don't leave us we need
you now

Sensing his worry the animals gather around

As if their
mere presence can calm him somehow

How will I raise him, look at this

No room I could find him his heart did remark

Does this mean
I've failed him, is this place fit for a king

Oh Lord please help me I'll
do anything

The cry of his wife signals the birth of the holy

And with hands that were shaking he reached for God's Son

breath was now ragged torn away by the sight

Of a babe so perfect bathed
in heavenly light

As he watched him lay in the manger that

The lord gave him courage and broadened his sight

For the
little babe Jesus was happy bundled down in the hay

Lulled to sleep by
the churring of the lambs while they played

His faithful donkey kept
watch by the door

As strangers dropped to their knees to worship the new

Not concerned at all by his humble birth in the hay

The babe
knew his heavenly father would supply their needs for today

For the Lord
assured Joseph it mattered not where your born

Or your status in life,
whether you laugh weep or morn

For I'll always be with you, I'll always
be true

And to show you my love I give this gift unto you

The gift
of my son to share throughout time

He offers love and redemption,
forgiving the sins of mankin
