I wrote this as a poem a lifetime ago in 1993 and added on more in 1995. Long gone is the reason why it happened over the course of two years, nonconsecutive at that. I suspect I started to hum it rather than recite it and it morphed into a song. More came to me as I hummed. It isn’t too surprising as I almost always have more to say.
No matter what you celebrate (or don’t) this time of year, I hope you believe in goodness and that you carry it in your heart to share with others. Spread the goodness.
Show me the star said the shepherd,
Show me the star in the sky.
Show me the star so I may go
Find where the new savior lies.
Show us the star in the east,
Said three wise men who were kings.
We’ll bring him gifts and he’ll bring to us
A life that is everlasting.
Show me the star shining brightly,
Up in the heavens above,
For all to find the new born king
And share with the world all his love.
Look for the star Christmas Eve,
Shining above all the earth,
Over a manger, a crib made with straw
To announce baby Jesus’s birth.
Show us the star said all people,
Wherever we look every day.
Wherever we go, whomever we meet
To spread the message of Christmas Day.
To spread the goodness of Christmas Day.
