Christmas Day

Christmas day appear,
a bright youthful soul,
receive every toy I yearn for,
you occur in my soul,
while I shred each present apart,
a resentful patient moment

Expected thee to call 
“I waited, and waited!”
the phone rings somebody else
Played with my toys near hopelessness
other kids celebrating with their pops
view in the distance, tear spill

Dusk approach 
standing on the doorstep 
telephone rings
mom yell telephone!
my heart skip a rhythm
tears from happiness
flow down my face 
a greeting from daddy
emotions converted to bliss
