That moment closer draws

For enraptured child

Glittering eyes, sleepless night

Breathless expectation,

As darkness gives way

to Christmas morning

~~~~~

That moment closer draws

For ecstatic bride,

Bidding farewell to family home.

Church bells chime

Singleness gives way

to wedded rhyme

~~~~~

That moment closer draws

For expectant mum

Excitement mingled with apprehension.

On tenterhooks she waits.

Birth pangs give way

to exclamations of joy

~~~~~

That moment closer draws

For enthusiastic diner

Licking lips, salivating mouth

Juices all a-flowing

Gnawing hunger gives way

to complete satiation

~~~~~

That moment closer draws

For enervated saint

Pain-wreaked body, tormenting soul.

But spirit in exultation

Angels sing as earth gives way

to heaven’s fuller glory
