Can It Really Be Christmas?

A night like any other

Warming hands by the fire

Swapping stories, sheep sleeping

Laughter, friendship

In one instant life-changing

The sky bursts with light

News proclaimed

Can it really be?

Entering the stable

A man stands watch

Mother and baby sleeping

Awe fills the heart

Just as the angel said

Truth dawns

Worship this our King

Can it really be?

Telling others

Sharing with any

Listen to our tale

Not an ordinary night

The world’s wait

Finally over

He is here

It really can be

And is.

By Debi A. Martin

Christmas Eve, 2000
