Awakened early in the morning By the sounds of cheerful screams Wake up, it's Christmas Let's go to the Christmas tree!
Presents layed out In a cheerful array What joy they bring the children On this Christmas day
Ribbons, bows and paper Go flying in the air As children open presents without a worry or a care
A day with family is spent Reminiscing together over food Laughing, smiling and feeling joy But the day is ending soon
A sort of post-Christmas sadness Looms in the air As you realize this time is over You can't help but stare
Stare at this picture perfect moment Of your family together as one Playing games and talking Smiling and having fun
But what if this all changes In the years or months to come And your Christmas in the future Isn't so much fun What if you can't get together With all of your family? Will this scene that you see right now, Be the scene you will always see? For things change in an instant And you really never know, Will Christmas in the future, Have this same happy glow?
