The Party

Strings of a guitar,

The melody of a piano,

Angelic voices sing in chorus,

A familiar song stirs my soul.

 

The children play,

The teenagers giggle,

It’s a beautiful night,

Soaking up the smell of honey scented candles.

 

The adults murmur,

Happy to be with company,

Here in a safe place,

With those they call family.

 

The gingerbread man smiles,

While baby Patsy eats his foot,

Now he is incomplete,

And she delights in the taste of cookies.

 

Invited were many,

Yet some declined,

Others made excuses,

And few have come.

 

All were welcome,

In this house of love,

With more than enough to eat,

And riches to spare.
