We sit around the Christmas tree

Aunts and uncles, you and me.

The children rip the wrapping paper

Fire burns upon the taper.

Twinkling lights embrace the limbs

Ornaments dangle from the rims.

Stockings empty, treats galore

Litter piles upon the floor.

Adults sit and sip their wine

As the kids grow up in time.

Lights are dimmed and wrapping dulled

Due to children growing old.

If only we’d go back with age

To a time where none of us were sage.

And have a Merry Christmas true

Where we all are children too.
