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 embrace 
I don’t want any presents
All I want is your presence
On December twenty fifth

I know a poem isn’t exactly what you want
But it’s what I’ve got to give you
I know you’d much prefer something you could flaunt
Like, “check my grill, my tv, my ride” true?

And as much as I’d like to give you that sort of thing
You won’t get something so cheap from me
As all these things pass away my words will continue to ring
And I’m sure this is worth more than they ever would be

You’re my dad, and that’s always the truth
Good, Bad, and the Ugly that I share too (*coughyourfault* #blamedadnotgenetics)
Always, through and through
So I wanna say I appreciate you.

I know I’m not the greatest son in the world
Though you’ll always tell me different (because I really am. 😉 jk)
And you’re not a perfect father figure
But somehow I’m sure we can work past this.

You taught me so many key things even with distance
Work ethic, what not to do, and skipping stones
Even when my world is going 200 mph, I won’t forget this,
You’ve instilled things deep into my core, my bones.

Even though I’m taking shots at you in fun
I really respect what you’ve always done for me since day one
You’re my dad, and I’m proud to be your son.
Happy Father’s day. Have a good smile this one. 🙂
