As years have passed
Christmas has changed
It used to be about
The joy of getting what
I wanted to get.
Later, it became the
Disappointment
Or feeling of second place
When my friends got things
I didn’t know I wanted.
Finally, it has become
About the joy
Of seeing others smiles
Which I do not get to see
Often enough.
The warmth of family
The time spent together
That’s what it has become,
And for this
I am truly grateful.

Merry Christmas!
