Like Christmas

Reminding me
Of Christmas joy,
The children’s glee;
Anticipating well in advance
While Mom and Dad
Give a wondering glance
At the calendar as the days race past;
A desire to provide
Beauty, joy, special gifts.
Children impatiently wait;
Will the glorious day ever arrive?
The presents wrapped
The longing glance…is it enough,,
Does it look just right?
Will they be surprised?

Heavenly glory,
Preparation unseen;
Longing, we wonder and wait…
Will You give that last glance,
Let the trumpet blast,
And usher us in to receive?
