glasses of gloomy cheer

this season will always taste funny

mixing grief and sadness
with gratitude and happiness
creates the most unpalatable concoction

and yet to survive in this discolored world
we must drink it

we must raise these glasses of gloomy cheer
and gently sip to the memories
of what could have been

while the presents are unwrapped
and the songs are sung

let us also drink heartily
to the hope of what may come
