Once upon a time

Christmas chaos reigned.

Presents covered the floor

Under the glistening tree,

Turkey eaten,

Carols sung,

Family presents opened,

Midnight Mass.

Then Santa visited

And Christmas morn

Became a blur

Of laughter

Of fun

Of love.

Today, two unwrapped

Presents lay under the tree.

Lonely. Silent.

Waiting for the

Chaos that will

Never come.
