Wild bells, frosty earth, and sacred sky, Rang in the love of truth and eternal light, Once a white Christmas, you arrived this world with amber daises and dainty whimsical delight. Happy bells, stormy land, and dutiful stars, Rang in the new blood, rang out the ancient feud, On a cherry Christmas, you came silently with me, we wore innocent dreams and rounded rosy dimples. Sometimes in the quietness I can hear you sing, under shimmering moonlight and in the morning sun, and feel you loving presence landing in my tears, When I was blinded, deaf, and dreadfully bitter, When I wanted to give up and join the faraway iceberg. In the bosom of the ocean buried, In the winters of past discontent, you are with me in everything I do, follow every footprint of my path. Seasons come, seasons go, You are my guiding angel, and you will always be. Another year, another December, Our love is a fever, burning still... Another Christmas, another birthday, Dearest child, you are always more than beautiful to me...
Many many years ago, on a Christmas Day, a young man and his family were anxiously waiting in the hospital for a new baby to be born. The mother, a 23-year-old opera actress, finally gave birth to a child after nearly 8 hours painful labor. The newborn infant was a wonder and perfect in every way, except the fact that she was a girl.
The family was desperately in need of a male heir and was assured by the doctor that the child would be a boy; however, her birth crashed all the fancy plans the whole family had carefully schemed. No one knew what to do with her…. That was the first Christmas and first day of life.
” They were sulking and screaming in madness! The doctor and nurses were blamed harshly….”. A relative who was there that Christmas confessed two decades later. But I was not surprised to learn this.
This Christmas, with this birthday poem, I am sending much love and deep compassion to the baby girl I was, reassuring her that everything is well and will continue to be well. May we be blessed and protected to the end of all times…
Revisiting those old days, I am still sometimes amazed by the fact that I have now fully grown into a woman…
