Christmas Eve

Candlelight
Red and green decorated
The sounds of siblings and cousins and relatives
Bouncing echoes off the wall
They rub their eyes
And yawn
Cookies are out
For a man that never came
Now I wait for bells I may never hear
As I walk up the staircase
And see my sister and my cousins
And I hope
That visions of sugarplums danced in their heads
Because they cease to dance for me any longer

The author's comments:
I wrote this because for a while I had lost my holiday spirit. I felt like there wasn't a lot to it anymore but I realized it's a lot more than presents, cookies and Santa. It's about hope, joy, peace, love and being close as a family.
