- - - I wish

Written by: Broken Wings

I wish . . . I could go back in time go back, back to when I was a child full of happiness and pure joy to Christmas with my family before the sorrow . . . O, how I loved Christmas Day the cooking and decorating Mom fussing and Grandma dusting Dad entwining lights on the tree us children running all about before the sorrow . . . The fireplace crackling and glowing snow falling and Santa dreams dancing in my mind in the night my new kitten purring before the sorrow . . . ___________________________ Written, 2012 Submitted to the contest, Free Verse, A Poet Destroyer
