That Christmas feeling

by Devina


… feels as if it’s faded

With each year it get worse, you hear this every year

The sad darkness that creeps

Inside me with this realization finds a comfy spot and settles


Drive it away says the child that I was

Drive it away with the memories of dressing up

The old Christmas tree with grandma at the bakery

With the smell of fresh bread clinging to the branches

The shiny gold and silver globes hanging on limbs

The red train chugging under the tree with Santa on the roof


Remember the fun, the joy, the smells, the feelings,

The music, the laughter, the sticky chocolate

Remember what it was to be a kid at that time of year

Believing that the chubby old man would be here tonight

Remember …


Just remember and let the memories flood

Let it posses me once more

And when it goes, let it not leave me bereft

But warm and sweet and I hold on as

That Christmas feeling returns once more.
