I Am Xmas

It's Christmas eve
and as I sit
Am filled with
peace and light
Friends sharing
tales of xmas cheer
Bring heart warmed
tears to sight

As I think back
thru this past year
And all the shining souls
Who've graced my heart,
thru day and night
My gratitude unfolds

The pulse of life
springs eagerly
It's mirrored
in my voice
My body
echoes vibrantly
The Knowing
is my choice

I am the heart
that beats within
Stars twinkling
thru the haze
A mothers hug,
lover's caress
A child's adoring gaze

To all who've graced me
with their touch
My thought to you is this
Know you are light
and hope and love
For you are
ALL there IS!
