The poetry of Kris Mercer

 

Xmas


The festive season
is upon us yet again.
The season of good cheer,
happiness, light heartedness.
What of us ?.
We are one.
Alone !
The children scamper about,
excited, sleepless, noisy.
We are not on our own.
Alone !
The presents all wrapped
we sit quiet.
Xmas day is minutes away.
A drink by our sides.
A fire in the grate.
Alone !
We are together.
Apart.
One parent.
