End of Christmas

Such an empty night, once festivities die

when the sounds filter out and the lights are dimmed

and the floors do not creak, because no one will walk them

as they all sprawl out upon their beds

full from excitement and done with the joy

closed eyes and sighs, perhaps even a few tears

because now as things settle down, life begins once more

and Christmas is over before it has begun

so to family and friends, as I bid them goodnight

thankyou for the presents and the laughter we've shared

as i curl up with a yawn, and think of the next day ahead

and with tired eyes dream of nothing but peace
