ive never waited so long for someone
(except for her and i’m still waiting)
on dec 26 i started taking down the christmas decorations
(usually they’re up much later)
but i am just too ready
to move forward from this season
from the waiting and the longing and the hoping
he is here, he is born!
He is here, He is born!
(let’s go on!)
so i’m unstringing the lights,
and tucking ornaments away in their little boxes
i’m storing these hallmarks of anticipation
back in our basement for another year
and am happily getting on with the living
part of life
