Come Home to Christmas

by Alan Harris

If worldly searching brings no lasting joy
or grasping ego causes loss of friends,
come home to Christmas.

If monetary loss appears long-term
or health is gone and only pain remains,
come home to Christmas.

If grief or sadness overwhelms your soul
for no one can replace a loved one lost,
come home to Christmas.

If winter in your life hides warmer times
and no one seems to feel the cold you feel,
come home to Christmas.

If family has disappeared from view
and memories offer nothing but a void,
come home to Christmas.

It is an inner place where calm awaits—
a comforting and ease for misery.
Come home to Christmas.
