Twas the Day After Christmas

Twas the day after Christmas
where memories abound
of family and friends 
all gathered around.

The house now lays silent
where conversing had been,
remembering the joy
and the mood we were in.

The tree looks much lighter
and the walkway not thin
as the floor is now empty
where the presents had been.

Twas the day after Christmas,
yesterday is now gone
but only in passing,
in our hearts it lives on.

    Wonderfully put in your day after Christmas poem Douglas... u see my tree with its 500 lights and manger scene are up all year long.. when visitors come to call the oohs and aahs abound... luv the atmosphere of my "happy home" scenario..for all to enjoy.. cooked for two days and for two days family enjoyed.. now all is quiet again as most of them work on Saturdays... dreary and rainy here too... hope u had a happy and blessed Christmas Day with family and friends.. luv from Whiz Kid "Sweetheart"
