Red Poinsettia adorning the hall
as white snow flakes begin to fall.
The music is sharp upon the ear.
Echos of laughter for all to hear.
It is that time again.
Winter is setting in.
Built with sweet memory.
Wishing to go back again.
Gum drops and sugar-coated,
Slices of orange candy.
One piece and a simple taste,
brings back everything.
A tiny rocker, a baby doll,
Divinity so perfectly peaked.
Cookies and fudge, a dinner divine,
Drinks, Be Marry! O Family of mine.
A huge tree every year for sure.
With difficulty getting in the door.
New decorations that sparkle and glow
with old ones too, from years long ago.
I miss those days, there is no doubt.
To have them here again and without
the worries, the woes that make up life.
Get on with it, be happy in spite!
Dinners and laughter it all came together
with gifts of love wrapped for each other.
Lights put up to dazzle the night.
Listen to carols…One Star, One Light.
