The Magic of Christmas

 I shake off the dust of illness
Recovery is nigh despite the glaring
Shadow of re-occurrence
I will not doubt that I shall overcome
The misty shadowy thing that stalks me
I shall grab happiness and health
With both hands I embrace
 The joyous season of love and hope
And rejoice in family, friends, and love
The inner glow of joy shall keep me
Whole and well to enjoy
This Christmas once more.
