Just a few days before Christmas
And all alone except in my head
I try to make sense of my thoughts
And decide to stay alone instead.
Presents are wrapped and delivered
No one expects me to call or appear
It just isn’t the same as years ago
Little thought of joy or even cheer.
I’ve given my best wishes to family
I believe they will feel I’m around
My love I try to show them each day
I know they are okay without a sound.
This holiday seems much less important
Just not the same as in the years past
So rather than share my own frustration
I’ll hope the New Year will come in fast.
