A Christmas Candle

This is a Christmas candle
To light but once a year
It is the time for giving
Excitement and good cheer

A time to think of others
I hope you’ll shed a tear
For those who live in poverty
Or those who live in fear

Think about the children
Scattered around this land
Who never know what Christmas is
Just try to understand

Be thankful for your blessings
Keep your family near
Give them all an extra hug
It’s only once a year.
