Christmas !!!!!!!!

My heart sings
a lullaby for the child in the manger
who never grows,in my mind.

I always see the swaddling clothes
the shepherds, the wise men
the stars.the celebrations
the cake and the wine..
And I hesitate,as I know
the cross is a shadow that
will soon become real
in a repetition of yearly observances..

And a sword pierces my soul !
