My Unorthodox Christmas

So Christmas has come and gone
Another run of cheer in the books
It was a wonderful time this year
Even though we went about it with different looks

See, we didn’t open our presents today
Saving them for New Year’s Eve
While everyone else is throwing away wrapping paper
We still have gifts to receive

Instead of rejoicing
And singing candid Christmas carols
We decided to play a raunchy card game
And make all sorts of creative perils

And even though
There’s no snow
Far and wide as the eye can see
My unorthodox Christmas
Had still managed to make me happy

It will come again next year
As the family gets smaller
And drifts further apart
That will correlate with a barer tree
Looking so skinny, now that’s just for three

To cope with the sadness that years together are dwindling
I have to believe
That somewhere in this world
Is the starting piece for a new family
That the traditions will continue
Anew and better
That my kids and their kids
Will carry on the name
Keep on the happiness that
Comes in this game
And celebrate these great holidays
Full of love and cheer
Have their own unorthodox Christmas
Never have anything to fear

And I won’t be lonely
Will have someone always there
To share and build a well of memories
And have the dearest opportunity to share
