On Christmas Eve


23 December 2009
By: Noel N. Villarosa


Silence occupied the room for so long
No signs of visitor to step on coming
Trying to entertain himself in craving
Of bygones and the future just like a throng

Shebang of party for a corporation
Another shanty is built for the hapless and poor
To prance inside malls to buy gifts and liquors
Some lull their little ones and enjoy the sound of the nearby occasion

Where some folks went house to house to do caroling
Street children do their own charm to get the pay of their talents
As the street they considered as their home from abandonment
A strain to other’s eyes but to God’s eyes they are for caring

Some are excited to receive new things from exchange gift
While others jazz up old belongings to make it looks like new
A mother holding her baby in her arms was cooing softly, while lying askew
In the muteness of the night, they both fell asleep and had gone adrift

Into a socialite community a lavish buffet, at which guests help themselves
In the remote areas scarcity in food, at which family members do share equally
With their flickering gas lamp, spend the night hanging around the house lackadaisically
While others are enjoying the spectacle of the brightness of Christmas tree at twelve

The whole night of Christmas eve was splendid to view
Alive and zest for a family with wealth
The whole night of Christmas eve that has dwelt
For the poor is a house frame suffused with cold dew

A portrait of the Holy Family on the first Christmas eve
Within that stable, baby Jesus was lying in a manger
A message of love, joy and peace be extended to every stranger
On Christmas eve, Jesus will visit every home and this is to believe.
