Something is wrong 

A special day

A time of thanks

A time together 

Dressed in pretty clothes.

Christmas day

Christmas dinner

All together 

In those special ways.

Christmas today

Some don’t care

Families split

Empty chairs 

No pretty clothes

No chairs to seat

Meals be eaten

Around big TV.

So glad for memories 

Of happy times

Christmas dinners

Family waiting in line. 

Written by my feelings,
