Christmas Eve

October 20, 2011
By , La Crescenta, CA
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
