Sunday Scribblings #246

DECEMBER SONG
December song,
End of year,
End of life,
A time to think about endings,
And new beginnings.
If you can just get through this year.

December song,
Dead of winter,
Tax time almost here,
Same old holidays,
But different each year.
There are no promises,
If you can just get through this year.

December song,
The melody rolls on,
The chorus sings low,
Wrap it in handmade paper,
Tie it in a bow,
There are no promises,
If you can just get through this year.

December song,
Colors of the heart,
Washed out and faded,
Stitched together,
With a red thread,
Bound as one,
There are no promises,
If you can just get through this year.

December song,
My hope for you is,
That the days ahead,
Will get better,
The factory will reopen,
And you and the kids will get
A place of your own.
If you can just get through this year.

  2. Strong feelings well written, and yes, a march of words like feet hitting the pavement.
