Canada holds a special place in the world this year,
We want to share our homeland with those in fear.
We will not let those who try to divide and control,
Be they tyrants, politicians or others out on parole.
Our hearts and help go to those in desperate need.
We send ammunition to those facing Putin’s greed.
In Gaza, Canada has called for a humane cease fire,
The needs of the non-combatants in Gaza are dire.
Our political system helps make our country strong,
Using it to divide Canadians could be so very wrong.
Life is to be lived in joy for those of us, young or old.
And leave a verdant world for those new to the fold.
Watching the seasons pass on our earth, is not dull.
Each, in our way, should want to enjoy life to the full.
At this special time of year, lets all enjoy the season
With love, sharing and good wishes without reason.
And a Happy and Healthy New Year to All!
