Celebrate
by Carl Josehart

celebrate the birth
of love
from generation to generation
from husband to wife
parent to child
lover to loved one
rejoice in the love born of unselfish acts
generous hearts
gentle souls

celebrate the birth
of joy
look through the eyes of a child
fill your eyes with wonder
and experience the awe

celebrate the birth
of hope
miracles abound in the everyday
suspend disbelief
and hope for more than you dare to dream

celebrate the birth
of peace
join in the praise
shudder before the expanse of the universe and all the heavens
delight in the beauty of a single petal on a perfect flower
join hands and voices
and sing to love
to joy
to hope
to peace and
to one another

Celebrate the birth
