December 11th 

The eleventh day of December gave to me, 

A little bit of hope inside of me. 

As i wrapped Christmas presents, 

I couldn't wait to see the faces of those i love, 

When they open their gifts. 

I couldn't wait for the excitement you feel,

On Christmas morning as you run to the tree. 

I carefully wrapped each and every gift, 

Giving it some care and most importantly  love. 

My dog has stole the bows again, 

Now where has my scissors gone? 

I start to think of all the people, 

Who have to spend Christmas alone. 

Which makes me feel guilty for all that i have, 

The gifts and the people, 

Some don't have that. 

I look around at the Christmas tree, 

But i don't feel happy or filled with glee. 

I only feel sadness and pain inside, 

Like many other Christmases i have seen. 

Where has all the holly gone? 

Where is the Christmas spirit you once had? 

I don't even know but i wish i did, 

Because i'd take it back with a blink.
