Christmas Morning

Christmas Morning

I woke up early this morning,
While walking past the tree,
I noticed something was different.
So I got down on bended knee.

The Creche was there, still nestled
Under the Christmas tree branches,
I noticed something was missing,
But how? What were the chances?

The little baby Jesus
Was no where to be found.
All the rest were in their places
Scattered all around.

Mary was with Joseph,
The shepherds with their sheep.
The camels with their wisemen,
Their vigils they did keep.

But where could the little Jesus be?
He's the center of it all!
I started searching everywhere
My sleeping family I did call.

Has anyone seen Jesus?
He's nowhere to be found!
No one had a single clue
And no one made a sound.

How can Jesus be missing?
Christmas Day is here.
It happened without warning,
How did He disappear?

About the Poet
I am a Christian wife, mother, and grandma of five, including twin granddaughters. I love to write poetry, take nature photos, and collect buttons. I have close to 30,000 buttons. I am retired after more than 30 years of senior care including 13 years working with Alzheimers residents. I've been writing poetry (like my mom) since I was little. I still have my first poem. It was in a card I gave to my dad. As an adult I prayed for the gift of encouragement and poetry. I think it's so important to encourage others in their faith and also unbelievers. God has brought me through so much and I am thankful for my salvation. I asked Jesus into my heart and have never regretted a single moment. It was a true blessing when 3 of my poems where published. One in a local newspaper and two in different magazines. You can also find me on my facebook page at Whispers of Hope/Linda T. Reich where I post short devotionals, my nature photos and poems. Thank you. ♥
