A National Holiday

It just isn’t Christmas without love
No matter how much you bundle up,
Hats, boots, coats, gloves
Lacking a warm heart you’ll never have enough
It isn’t the gifts that make it merry
It’s the interaction of family
And friends that make this a national holiday

This year
Holiday Cheer
Isn’t knocking at my door
As I gaze deep into a mirror
I realize how alone I am here
And I find myself longing for more

My dear
I fear
That we belong together
As this haze, a holiday smear
Easily forgotten because no one cares
Drags on without you, and leaves me sore.

This Christmas
My wishlist
Is simply
You and me
By the fireplace

Staying warm
In your arms
Under a blanket
Content with
The sweetness
Of companionship

Bells that jingle
And old Chris Kringle
Eating chocolate chips
Red nosed reindeer
And holding loved ones near
A holiday to never forget

Just a mistletoe apart
Heart to heart
A romantic embraceĀ 
I don’t want any presents
All I want is your presence
On December twenty fifth
