Ghosts of Christmas Past

How different would Christmas be if I wasn’t surrounded by family?

Opening packages would be such a bore,

love of pink

If I wasn’t surrounded by cousins galore.

Oh what fun!

A lone gal Christmas sock affair,

star of show

Instead of hanging stockings by the chimney with double the care.


All dressed up with nowhere to go,

Carrying the Christmas load alone...

Instead of trying to be the star of the show.

Can we cousins ever get a pose down?

Christmas pageants with one can be so annoying,

I minded so much

But with two, the show is much more enjoying.

Take 20

Lonely lonely would Christmas celebrating be

Without the decades of fun with family.

From past to present with futures near,

Hold those dear, with your heart full of cheer.
