via Daily Prompt: Relate


Feeling overwhelmed
I can relate
The hustle and bustle
The children can’t wait!

The presents, the shopping
The cooking and more
The crowding, the pushing
Inside of the stores.

The wrapping, the planning
The dinners for eight
The table you’re setting,
The decorative plates.

Cookies and candy
Popcorn and nuts
Garland and mistletoe
Hung from above.

The tree and the manger
The paper and bows
The glitter and tinsel
The cold and the snow.

Can’t wait to sit down
And, just take a rest
A cup of hot chocolate
Whipped cream is the best.

Christmas will be here
And, over so fast
Before you can blink
The day will be passed.

Enjoy your family
The smiles on their face
As they open their presents
Before, it’s too late.

The years will pass by
The kids will grow up
It’s worth all the effort
It’s worth all the fuss.

  1. Hi Patty! I am new to blogging and I came across your poem. It is very lovely and I can totally relate to the situation. You are absolutely right, that the kids will grow up fast and it’s all worth the effort and the fuss.
