My Christmas Wishlist

I am an adult, but I still want things

but mostly they are for the joy they bring.

To me, it wouldn’t be Christmas without

doing these things to get spirit on route.

-Putting up a tree and decking it out

with candy canes and ornaments, no doubt.

-Baking cookies for those naughty or nice

and those who were willing to brave the ice.

-Driving or walking to see Christmas lights,

has to be one of my favorite highlights.

-Wrapping the presents, taping them just so

(and when I mess up cover with a bow)

-Singing Christmas carols loud enough to hear

sharing tidings, comfort and of course cheer!

-Sitting by the fire with those I love,

there is nothing else I would put above.

Holiday Feels

Nothing quite brings out the “Holiday Feels”

like being the only single one at the table.

Nothing reminds me of the hurt

filling my empty heart

like seeing the love and joy that fills many others.

Nothing brings me such pain

as dreaded questions and comments like

“Why didn’t you bring someone?” or

“Oh, well there’s always next year”.

Nothing brings me such envy

as seeing kisses and tenderness

that I can only imagine in dreams

Nothing brings me the “Holiday Feels”

like being subjected to time with family.

Alone for the Holiday

Alone, yet again

for another holiday.

Me myself and I

will be present Christmas day.

No one to snuggle

and kiss under mistletoe.

No one to bring home

There’s no one to want to go.

Alone, yet again

No reason for me to brag.

To Christmas dinner

My parents will have to drag.

I love Christmas time,

but it gets harder each year.

No one to love me,

Kills all of my Christmas cheer.
