AT CHRISTMAS by Giti Tyagi – PAROUSIA Magazine

At Christmas the merriment spreads around
The festivities, the joy when fills the air
And spreads the message far and wide
The message of love, cheer and bliss abound
The message of the Lord, so Divine and pure
This time of the year when the music fills
The hearts with joy and the hopes that fly
High up to the skies, higher they reach
The faith in the goodness rekindles 
And the arms stretch out, welcoming all
It’s more of a time we’d spend to cleanse
Our souls and hearts and the inner selves
Belief in the Lord and his love strengthens
With the continual blessings showered upon 
And the unflinching faith in the chosen path
Never shall we then be misled by the delirious desires
Nor befogged by the hazy illusions
Each step forward towards the Light Divine
Eager to surrender with cheer, love abound
The shining light enlightening the path
That sparkles in the heart so pure, so serene
Opening the inner depths of the soul
Towards the illuminating source of peace and charm
The mind opened, the vision broadened
Welcomes the serene, tranquil, illumining Light
A life full-lived, as a blossomed bloom
With open arms embracing the ever-loving humankind
Ignorance shed as the autumn leaves
The enlightened mind and the soul when cheer
Evanescing the distress, dispelling all fears
Seeking the blessings and the Bliss Ultimate!
