Christmas Is – Part 4

Mother. Father. Child.
Together.
Alone.

Guests who arrived had been invited by angels.
Angels. And a star.
Shepherds. Wise men.
How simple it was,
how thrilling.
How lonely.

Christmas.
Family.
Presents.
And an unexpected sense of loneliness –

We too are waiting
for angels,
and
for Peace.
