íTis the Morning After Christmas
Poetry by Mary T. Hoffman

íTis the morning after Christmas,
And I crawl out of bed
Only to discover
The euphoriaís fled.

Gift boxes and bows
Arranged in a pile
Remind me of yesterday
And bring on a smile.

The excitement is over
But deep down inside
The message of Christmas
Will never subside.

For the meaning of Christmas
Is not measured by things
But only the peace
That the Christ Child brings.

So, at the dawn of each day
Iíll renew my commitment
To help those in need Ė
Thatís true joy and contentment.

For humans and animals,
Their pain to relieve
Through love and compassion,
Christís peace to receive.
