in the eve I lay me

down to bed

a Christmas suite

playing joy in my head

safe from the cold,

I am cozy and warm

with hopeful memories

of Christmas morn

everyone’s happy

snuggled in PJ’s

cats bat tinsel

while dogs attack trains

I truly hope

everyone smiles today



something is stuck

I can’t swallow the lump

in my chimney

it’s bringing me to dream

it’s causing nightmares

that scream

before the holiday’s birthday


it is because I know


someone wanders the streets…

helpless and cold

they remember the food

they recall the warmth

they still remember

the family

gathering at the hearth


they relive a time

exchanging gifts

with family and friends

on a Christmas of old
