About this Christian Poet:
I am a born-again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Since my salvation December 31, 1991, God has blessed me with the gift of poetry.  I have written many poems, but have never submitted any for publication anywhere.

What If?

What if Jesus on a long ago night
Had not been born our saving Light?
What if the star that shone in the east
Had not lit the way for man and for beast?
There would be no Christmas. No celebration.
No decorations.  No salvation.
There would be no wreaths of holly and bells.
No Christmas carols.  No cheery noels.
No Christmas presents.  No Christmas trees.
No peace on earth for you and for me.
No Christmas stockings hung from the mantles.
No Christmas cookies.  No Christmas candles.
No churches welcoming family and friends.
No warm happy feeling at a busy day's end.
We'd be living in darkness with no hope in sight,
But God chose to send us His holy Light.
So during the hustle and bustle this year,
Remember the reason for holiday cheer.
