I see Christmas in a child's eyes,

bright,

sparkling with innocence,

ready to trust the beauty

in each new day.

I see Christmas in a child's eyes,

cheery,

serene in small joys,

eager to hold a hand for guidance.

I see Christmas in a child's eyes,

a gentle tear,

a blink of renewal,

a hug of reassurance

for the world
