Still There revised

Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree
why are you still standing 
The days grow long
snow's almost gone
a new season is near to dawning

A snowman smiles or more than one
glittering snowflakes large and small
A new born's festive photograph
a second grade too much older
hand-made creations here and there
a decoration in the eye of the beholder

Tall and strong this tree still stands
holding all these precious memories
It took so long to decorate
each sentimental piece just right in place
It's a shame to take them down again
 
Sort which goes where
wrap with tissue and care

This ever green tree purchased specifically to annually assemble
loses needles here and branch limbs there with each holiday preamble
As life keeps moving ever on and change is creeping nearer
the Christmas tree still stands, testament to all I hold dear

    Hello Sara. It would be grand if all decorated trees could stand all year long to admire the beauty and thought. As a child Christmas was always special including the tree. Thanks for sharing memories. Nice to see you posting. Well done
