Christmas has left gently closing the door behind her,
Eggnog stains and chocolate wrappers the only reminder.
The garlands and wreaths have come off the door,
The wrapping paper, ribbons and bows in the way no more.
The Santa hats and stockings lovingly folded and packed away,
Infused with the laughter and cheer of that magical day.
The reindeer on pause, a vacation for Santa Claus.
Seasonal movies pushed to the back of the shelf,
We are left with Yuletide blessings and wealth.
Today the work week once again starts,
Let’s keep Christmas living in our hearts.
