CHRISTMAS EVE


there is a strong feeling of anxiety in the air
as the merry of christmas draws near
amidst all the sanity of joy and jubilation
there lies a thin foil of troubling expectation
a day like tomorrow, every believer would dare love to bear
when we sip memories of Christ's birth being told
our hearts reverberates the melodies of bells being tolled
the sudden burst of hope with a saviour been born
assures me my sinful cloak shall be torn
come join me welcome tomorrow with pleasant carols
before we light our christmas candles
let all and sundry make a wish on christmas eve
joy, joy, great joy on christmas eve

    There is much to support in your poem. Christmas Eve is a period of rejoicing when even prisoners in chain have cried. The hours tick by towards midnight and we feel in our heart everything that make Christmas Even and Christmas so special. Our hearts burst with nostalgia. IMO
