REVISED CHRISTMAS SCHEDULE
Covid is trying to force the
cancellation of Christmas this year.
Locked in, our loved ones
are feeling lost and uneasy.
The time for family and friends
has been slapped down.
There is a different rulebook
on what we can or should do.
But Christmas is safe
within each one of us.
No matter what happens,
we can link up and be with each other.
Let’s schedule our daily phone calls
to catch up and chat.
Let’s send our texts randomly and often.
Let’s plan Zoom chats for games,
quizzes and present opening.
For Santa is coming as planned.
Let’s watch our TV shows
and films as usual.
Let’s set up the laptop beside the TV
and bring all of us together.
Let's also take a moment
to remember those who have died.
Let's reach out to those missing loved ones
and those struggling with isolation.
For we can expand our get-togethers
this year, not restrict them.
Let's use WhatsApp, FaceTime or Skype
to include more people than ever before.
Let’s have big bubbles and
little bubbles everywhere!
Let’s encourage and bring cheer to others.
Let’s celebrate all of Christmas this year.
So, let’s plan our revised schedule now
with who, and what and when.
Let's send out our invites to our loved ones.
And let's include others with a very
deliberate act of Christmas kindness.
And let us look forward this Christmas
with moments of love and hope.
For we know, as always, there are babies
soon to be born all over the world.
