Poetry: “The day before”

Today is the day before we celebrate Christmas, and that puts me in a contemplative mood.


The day before

I crawl up all inside myself
My oldest memories
That float up to the surface
Just before Christmas Eve

A day that was a ritual
So comforting and nice
Where everything was like a dance
To which you knew the steps

And at the end of all of it
You’d almost hold your breath
A house that’s all made ready
For Christmas to arrive

Inside my heart there’s still that child
But certain things have changed
This day might not be just the same
But it’s nice enough to dream
