Annual Poem and Christmas Songs By Ted Camp, SWM

T’was the night before our
first Covid Christmas
and all through the house,
not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse.

It’s Christmas 2020

Where is Everyone?
Seems everyone is long gone,
and we are left home all alone.
Sent presents present but we are absent,
Received presents present but they are absent.

It’s Christmas 2020

Where is Everyone?
Even though we are many miles apart,
we are still together and near in our heart.

It’s Christmas 2020

Where is Everyone?

We are here – They are there,
Their love is here – Our love is there
We are family – we still love and care.

The Christmas star still shines above,

next year “together” with those we love.
Others are absent but Christ is present
His presence is still the greatest present.

Now It’s Christmas 2021

Where is Everyone?
Everyone is gathering one and all,
a smile and a hug and food as 2020 we recall.

No one is absent but all are presentwith presents,
We’ve learned presence is better than presents.

After Christmas story, gifts are swapped and all is done,
As Tiny Tim, we all together will joyfully say,
“God bless us, every one!”

Merry ChristmasHappy New Year
