a poem and a holiday wish
Void of sleep on Christmas Eve,
I sit in my husband’s office reading Final Girls.
Thank him for being the perfect gift long ago wished for.
Begin to assemble cookie trays for his family.
I don’t get all into this Christmas stuff.
I’ve had a few glimpses of the spirit
but haven’t been able to go all in.
Unlike my childhood days- begging
my parents to get up at 7 am- presents
were in front of the fireplace,
I wanted to rip
them open one by one.
I think of my childhood self and smile.
I know she would have loved today.
So despite the lack of sleep and needing
to work tonight- I think I’ll try to take it in.
Thank you for reading my work. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful holiday today or whenever you will celebrate it.
