As some kind of “pleased-to-meet-you” sort of greeting (and also for Christmas’ sake), I’ll present to you a poem I’ve just came up with.
Night lights bright in the empty black canvas
As we walk hand in hand through a forest of jolly excitement
The ground was frozen and the air ice-white mist
But the candle inside us kept us warm and awake
They opened the bright, glittering boxes wrapped in coloured feelings
Tucked under the tree, to find toys and other things from ‘him’
Some hated their share and sulked in the corner, alone
Really? Gifts are priceless when my sweet darling is here
Midnight is an inch away; it’s time to go home
‘Will we meet again?’ she asked, eager but forlorn
I answered, ‘Tomorrow, I suppose, to watch the world light up
in a magnificent colour and all cheer in joy, alas!
It might suck, I know; it’s my first Christmas poem. Bear with it! Christmas is all about sharing… right?
Enjoy your Christmas Eve with joy and greet Christmas with love. Wish you a Merry Christmas!
