Christmas Memories Poem


I wrote this little poem in 2014, in 2017 I expanded on it, and 2018 have added to it, I think I might add a verse each year as a time line of sorts.

December 26th 2014

So much for cancelling Christmas when it all got too much,

all of the little Pinterest’ing things I had planned to do and such,

A Christmas eve bread that didn’t get prepared,

Those sugar plum fairies didn’t bother dancing in my head,

Christmas is over for another year,

The house has been filled with festive cheer,

The tummies are a little rounder than the day before,

There is plates and cups filling the sink

& pretty coloured wrapping paper still over the floor

Presents where gladly unwrapped,

Smiles on faces where not zapped,

Spending the day together was the best present of all,

so much laughter we all had a ball

Lots of memories created,

new traditions made,

my routines out the door left me a little deflated,

but it all worked out at the end of the day

Both girls spending yesterday enjoying what they got,

think I may do it all again next year,

it’s worth another shot..

Lights are still twinkling across all of the tree’s,

A very merry Christmas to you from me.

Yes while everyone is sleeping soundly in their beds I have poetry running through my head.


December 2017

Lots of memories created,

new traditions made

My routines out the door left me a little deflated,

but it all worked out at the end of the day,

In Melbourne this year.

My girl is now 16 and in a few years probably won’t want to celebrate with us.

The husband worked driving the train, not the polar express.

I had a long bath then fell asleep on the couch.

The dog chewed up all of his gifts, And the cat enjoyed the foil and box he got to play with.

A candle burned on the table

A reminder of those no longer with us

Memories of Christmas pasts echoes around my head

The magic and laughter is now always missed.

Now the day of boxes has arrived

think I may do it all again next year,

it’s worth another shot..

Lights are still twinkling across all of the tree’s

A very merry Christmas to you from me.

I wrote this in 2014. I have changed it slightly to reflect this current year


December 26th 2018

2018 now and not a lot changed

Angel is 17, Jack had the day off from driving the trains

a village we now have, so lots of lights and sound the many trees we have twinkling in the background

I am thinking that each year I will add a verse or two a sort of merry Christmas from our family to you
