Sad This Christmas


Christmas time is getting near
I don't have much Christmas cheer
Pain from the past much on my mind
To all my loved ones, I'll be kind
Thinking about those, I lost in the past
Wanting this to be over, pretty fast
Don't want to shop or go to the store
For me this year a real sad chore
I don't even want to put up a tree
But I can't think about only me
I'll have to wear a mask this year
And hope I don't shed a single tear
My family needs to think I'm happy
I'll hide my feeling's, feeling crappie
Merry Christmas to all of you
And I will smile, as if on cue!

    Oh Donna, I could cry. Even from the title I knew this was not going to be a happy poem, but thank you nonetheless. I know that is what the season will be like for too many people. I'm going to tell myself that those last two lines are ironic humour just for the uplift. But, thanks again. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
