The 12 Angels of Christmas
Twelve Christmas angels met
Up near the Milky Way;
To discuss why joy was missing,
From the Christmas holiday.
It gave them so much sadness,
As they tracked the negative trend;
So each decided to do their part,
To bring this madness to an end.
Angel one would touch memories,
Reminding of the blessings of life;
Angel two would tenderize hard hearts,
Removing bitterness and strife.
Angel three would gather families,
From far reaches of the earth;
Then stir feelings of love and peace,
Giving hope and joy new birth.
Angel four would return Merry
And Christ to holiday greetings.|
Angel five would clear calendars,
To make time for family meetings.
Angels six would flame enthusiasm,
Angels seven would spread cheer;
Angel eight would grow generosity,
Angel nine would diminish fear.
Angel ten would dispel darkness,
By lighting colorful decorations;
Angel eleven would draw the lonely,
To warm and friendly celebrations.
Angel twelve would have the hardest job,
Bringing wonder back to each heart;
And reminding all the people,
Of how Christmas had its start.
So with haste they met the challenge,
And made everything all right;
They restored the joy and happiness,
Before that Christmas night.
So Merry Christmas then to one and all,
May every tongue employ;
And thank you Christmas angels,
For bringing back the Christmas joy!
