I once was a young girl on Christmas-
No sleep on the night before-
Plagued by the anticipation
of what those boxes had in store.

I once was a teenager on Christmas
Wishing for the latest things:
Brand names and jewlery; Bags and perfumes;
Riches much fitted for kings.

I once was a woman on Christmas
reverting to childhood-like glee,
not for the toys or the presents,
but the joy of you being with me

Merry Christmas!
