Christmas day is here again
And sadness greets me like a friend
As memories flood through my mind
Of what happened last year at this time.
I couldn’t believe when I woke up to find
The house quiet, there being no sound
I rushed down stairs in my excitement to see
That there were no presents there but mine.
When I looked around and asked “where is everyone at”
The shadow hiding in the corner answered
“Sorry but they won’t be coming back”.
This confused me a great deal so I raised my voice to question again
“Why are they gone”.
And all he said was “why darling, dear, because they are dead”.
