It’s Your birthday Jesus!

Where are You Lord? at the mall, online, downtown?

In the midst of the lights and the mistletoe,

Are you nowhere to be found?

It’s Your big day God!

But it’s bothering me-

Did you really die alone in the dark

For tinsel on an evergreen tree?

Oh Holy Child of Bethlehem

This child seeks YOU tonight

While the world forgets, in Your radiant gaze

I’ll shine Your hope and light.

-Trisha (Stevens) Peach, 1990 (age 12)

I wrote this on my school workbook just before I turned 13. 🙂blog3
