Christmas Present

Oh they say it's that time of year

Full of joy and Christmas cheer

But Baby you're no longer near

This holiday leaves a forgotten tear,

 

Children playing in the snow

Baby don't you know

Now the shadows begin to grow

Those old feelings lay me low,

 

Just as snowmen melt and fade away

You just had to leave and couldn't stay

Now the warmth has all but gone away

I would wish this upon no one on Christmas Day,

 

Christmas was not your time of year

Oh how you made that so very clear

It's become an excuse to have another beer

Better than to endure another smear,

 

I remember Christmas as a child

When my smile was so tender and mild

Presents beneath a tree so neatly piled

Yet life has left me confused and beguiled,

 

It all happened for a sad reason

This funny yule tide season

You'll forgive me I'm feeling a little blue

Merry Christmas to you, you, and you!

I have watched your writing from afar.

This is quite different.

Interesting.

This part got me.

SO true for so many of us. 

(..although I was confused by life even as a child.)

Thanks for this ~ nice to see this week.

Thanks Anna, yes this time of year really brings it out of me, not necessarily the way I would like though.

Kosher with all due respect to Roy Orbison he's deader than a door nail and pushing up daisies, but I liked his music.

Foolish Monkey I have seriously considered doing a drum solo on You Tube but they might nuke the channel!

Amy looked to me like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer got her with his AR-15!
