A cold chill is in the air
The children are sleeping, soundly
Mumís not feeling too good
Even so, she wants to go
The proud grandparents are babysitting

The parents are ready
Girlfriend and boyfriend once more
Hand in hand through the door

Bells are ringing from across the town
Celebrating
A new born King
Ringing out the joy heíll bring
Oh Glory to the new born King!

With anticipation we enter, the church doors open wide
Oh!
Itís so full, as we enter inside
Moving up from aisle to aisle
A pleasant and peaceful atmosphere is breathed in
Time to sit and stand, when prayers are said, and hymns are sung
Such joy is here!
Where Godís presence is felt!

A reminder of the awesomeness of God
Through simple teaching of the word
Then, as prayers ring out, in Latin
The deep praise of hearts bursts forth
Like old friends, joy, peace and happiness fill our hearts
All too soon the time hereís ending
When, through winding aisles
The return home is made

Then, in the warmth once more
Grandparents, now loudly snoring
Golden balloons, out of their bag are taken
Blown up to bring a simple Joy, and excitement in the morní
That celebrates the special baby, that was borní

These times together, they donít last long
As the years get older, and we do too
Letís make the most of them, before theyíre gone
So you can tell your children, when they ask you
Hey Mom, do you remember the time whenÖ

What a beautiful read as I could just see so many things through your eyes.

Very well done! Can visualize myself with you at Mass. Title does not do it justice for me.
Keep up the good work.

I have never been to mass, but it sounds absolutely lovely. Makes me want to be there.

Ah ... very nice Penny! This reads so beautifully! Why are you in level 1 again? :-)

Penny, I love your poem. You tell of a wonderful place to be and describe it so well. I enjoyed midnight mass, with the children home sleeping soundly,grandparents watching over them, but it's crisp and cold and bells are ringing..great imagery.

You sure don't write like a beginner to me. Great job!

A lovely read, Penny. A special reminder of those moments, few and far between that couples must grasp and treasure. Loved 'boyfriend and girlfriend'.
