What Christmas Means to Me

What Christmas Means to Me
By: Noel N. Villarosa
December 17, 2015

The same feeling as I was a child
It does not change, what I believe
Christmas spirit felt and beguiled
At Christmas, we welcome being naïve

It is setting aside worries for the meantime
Look around and you’ll care for other’s needs
For this time, kids are caroling instead of nursery rhyme
A long break from work and school will succeed

Some would say won’t have celebration this year
As someone is gone to heaven bringing holiday blues
As this season means family reunion to endear
Have yourself emerged, you have to choose

Finding happiness in the simplest ways
The world has become more entertaining to view
Lantern watching and carnival visit to satisfy sullen days
After jaunting, visit movie houses to watch something new

It is time to be thankful for year-round blessings
It may not be a good year for you, but for others, it is
It is a worry-free, at heart-peace is worth possessing
Presence of loved ones doing old stuff that you miss

As here we are in modern days, we stick to old tradition
Gather around old photo albums and walk through golden days
Reconnecting is the best time, call by phone or write admission
Forgiveness is a key in healing; reach out as time fades and decays

My Diary of a Butterfly

My Diary of a Butterfly
By: Noel N. Villarosa
December 14, 2015

Oh, butterfly what have you done?
Many brawny men are attracted to your charm
You’re a kaleidoscope powered by the sun
Your gossamer wings banded my upper arm

Known to have a short but amazing life
Destiny is fulfilled in your own little way
Your graceful visit for flowers is rife
You’re my eyes to follow flowers in misty display

You colored my lonely days, guided while I groped
Into the brilliant test made by nature’s quest
Manmade beauty defies nature’s rays of hope
You foiled many of their conquests, I found rest

Your hovering traces a place to ponder
Securing the lonely scenery, offering peace
Your flight brings time playing with senses that wonders
What’s really out there, my yearning will increase
