Christmas Poem

Holiday's are a time for reflection of what could have been and also a time for new resolutions.

My Christmas Wish

© Karen
Dear Santa
Christmas is coming and I know I should be glad
But to tell the real truth I am really really sad
You see I have lost something so precious to me
And there is no way you could put it back under my tree

I was given a job quite some time ago
I thought I could do it, but it wasnít so
I honestly did what I thought was the best
But what I really did was make quite a mess

I was given a family with daughters to raise
Oh how I wish I could relive those days
I would do it different, be a better mother
Maybe then we wouldnít hate each other

My house is no longer a happy one
There is no more laughter, no more fun
No one talks, no one seems to care
We are all just roommates with a place to share

I donít really know where things went all wrong
I truly thought love would keep the family strong
I realize now that it wasnít enough
Neither was buying them all kinds of stuff

Somewhere along the line I believe Iíve failed
Instead of love and caring itís hate thatís prevailed
They have all given up they donít care anymore
And it breaks my heart to itís very core

I am tired of crying and feeling so bad
I want things to be happy and no longer be sad
I want my family back is that to much to ask
I donít really think itís an impossible task

Just talk to the girls and make them believe
That together there is nothing we canít achieve
We can be a family again, I know and I pray
They are just lost, please show them the way

Dear Santa I hope that you hear my plea
And bring my family back to me
I would be ever so grateful and I promise Iíd be
A better mother than Iíd been previously
