Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

 

 

I had a merry Christmas, yes–
but not because you wished me one.
My cheerful mood I here confess:
I had a merry Christmas. Yes,
I did. Well, mostly. More or less.
Your absence was a cool, bright sun.
I had a merry Christmas? Yes–
but not because you wished me one.
