I Must Confess…my ode to christmas
This week’s confession is two-fold. One, I’m confessing to my state of christmas unpreparedness that seems to haunt me year after year. Two, I’m confessing to being a very dodgy poet!
Here’s my ode to christmas – can you relate?
Oh Christmas, you manage to sneak up on me every year
Startling me into half-hearted christmas cheer
I really wish you wouldn’t, you know.
For once I’d love to have early xmas mojo.
It would be so nice to be prepared instead,
Crackers purchased ready for hats on heads,
Wreaths and decorations all on the walls
And christmas baubles decking the halls.
Just think of the presents I should have already bought,
Wrapped and purchased, so full of thought,
Yet here I am in December 2014
with nary a present for anybody.
I love the silly season, I really do
So why do I find it so hard to prove?
I’m not a grinch, truly I’m not
But I just can’t get into it, it seems, that’s what.
I love christmas carols, I sing really loud
Of our photo with santa I am very proud
I enjoy the food, the sweets and the wine
So why do I find it so hard all the time?
Maybe it’s just me, maybe I’ll never change
Perhaps I’ll always miss getting xmas in range?
But nevertheless I’ll keep trying my best
To make christmas special in our little nest.
I think that’s the key, really I do,
It’s all about what christmas means to YOU
It doesn’t matter if you are prepared or not
As long as you share love and laughter with your lot.
So I will wish you all merry and hope you stay well
And send every christmas wish one can tell
To make sure the silly season is good to you
And to everyone else in your crew.
Merry Christmas Everybody!
