IT’S CHRISTMASTIME

Holidays bring sadness
Thoughts of love that didn’t last
Missing those that are gone
Memories of the past.

Putting up the Christmas lights
Thoughts of holly, and Christmas trees
Listening to Christmas Carols
Wishing you were here with me.

The Christmas melancholy
Pervades the holidays
Wishing to change my mood
My thoughts, so dark and  grey.

Happiness is a state of mind
It’s time to start anew
You wouldn’t want me sitting here
Crying over you.

The Lionels still inside their box
I don’t know what to do
Losing you ….so hard for me
I sit here sad and blue.

It’s time to resurrect the train
Get the cars back on the tracks
They might be a little rusty
May need some oil and wax.

I’ll pour some sweet hot chocolate
Add a marshmallow and candy cane
I’ll start feeling better
Though things will never be the same.

A new day, a new chapter
The smell of peppermint and pine
Let’s make some Christmas cookies
Let’s be happy, it’s Christmastime.
