All my life I have tried to keep the spirit pf Christmas alive
Yet many kids never get to see a present underneath their
In third world countries where food is scarce
People talk about Christmas from centuries past.
The stories may be different but the theme is the same
Of a man who was bearing gifts for the children on his list.
It may be villages and tribes unknown
But generosity is always shown.
A hand made drum for boys to beat
Even a small wooden doll is quite a treat.
Christmas is known by different names
But the thought is still the same.
The spirit of Christmas should be in the hearts of man
So it could spread throughout each land
I know the spirit of Christmas will never grow old
It is a story that will forever be told.
