Christmas mourning

Today is christmas, kids are waking up before the sun.
Everyone else is celebrating,
Waking up early and smiling
Laughing and chasing each other down stairs excited for the gifts awaiting them at the bottom.
But as i watch them running downstairs, my heart aches and a tear falls because I know they will be met with nothing.
No presents under the tree,
No tree with a star on top,
No you…
No you, waiting for them with hot chocolate, exhausted from staying up all night wrapping last minute gifts and getting the santa costume perfect.

It happened last night and they don't know yet.

They don’t a lot of things.
They don’t know you were santa
They don't know that those presents were wrapped by you
They don't know that you were the only one tall enough to put the star on the tree or the only one that was strong enough to get the tree in the house.

They don’t know that you’re gone, but I have to tell them.
Today is Christmas Mourning.
