Christmas Past

Christmas past       

We always had a Christmas tree
My wife would decorate it without me

So many gifts by the tree
No empty space could you see

Our little ones would crawl all around
They would try climbing the gift mound

Year after year on Christmas morning 
Kids tearing open gifts and I’m yawning
The kids woke early on Christmas day
We told the kids your older so go away

With the years going by
We could sleep longer my wife and I 

Now since its just me 
No more do I need a Christmas tree

My kids now grown and they see
What its like to do the Christmas tree

    Hey, dont' they ever come back for a visit?That is what inspires ME to keep doing it. Even if they were not coming, I guess I"d still keep putting it up (helps when it's easy and artificial) Nice poem!!
