Where Did Christmas Go?WHERE DID CHRISTMAS GO?More Like This
The lights all stare at me blankly
And there’s nothing but cold in the snow.
And I just can’t help but wonder;
“Where did Christmas go?”
The presents lie there in their shimmering wrappings
But their contents I do not care to know.
The piano beckons, “Come and play.”
But where did Christmas go?
If I had known that Christmas would change with me,
I wouldn’t have grown up at all.
For I’m finding more beauty in the grey garden
Than in the holly hanging on the wall.
The food I could eat any other time of year
And the songs I’m so sick of hearing
All will be forgotten without a hint of grief
When it comes time for the January clearing.
I watch them all having their fun
And I wish I could join them but…no.
I just continue wandering aimlessly, crying;
“Where, oh, where did Christmas go?”
