~~~The Little Christmas Tree~~~

Post by Shirley Shaw » Tue Dec 11, 2012 4:54 am

I am just a small little tree
with leaves of not so green.
In fact some might say
that I look just like a twig.
My branches are yet so tiny
but I still have much meaning !

I am not yet in full bloom you see
cause I was picked before my time
but I am still unique
as I stand so quietly.
I can hold many gifts though
as I stand here all alone.

Someone picked me out of all the others
just to take me home.
Now I belong to those
who chose to watch me sit and grow.
I am only three feet tall
but it really doesn't matter to them at all.

I am their little Christmas tree
and now I am now so happy.
They especially picked me
for decorations you see.
I smell like pine, which is just fine
as I whisper, you are mine !

I hold many secrets in my branches
that no one else can hear or catch.
For I belong to someone special
and not chosen, just by chance !
I am patiently waiting here
for sounds of laughter and cheer !

For Christmas is vastly reaching near
and I came not from here,
but from a place called Bethlehem
as I watched the newborn Baby Jesus
asleep in his manger with a lamb !
So call me small, but filled with Christmas spirit, I am !
