Something Lost - Join me on my quest to find Christmas

Something Lost
 Over the next 25 days
I’m going to try to find
 My Christmas spirit, 

I lost it somewhere,

There are plenty of things to blame:
Ugly politics,
Fiscal cliffs,
Black Friday,
Swine flu (yes, I really had it),

But then I realized there’s really no one to blame
For something I lost except me,

I don’t want to be one of those people
Who has to find a scapegoat
For everything that goes wrong in my life, 

 I’m just saying that I am currently
Unmoved by sparkling lights,
Puppy dogs with red ribbons ‘round their necks,
 And sweet young children with lists written to Santa, 

Such a sad state of affairs
 For a normally optimistic,
Christmas loving person,

Over the next 25 days you are welcome
To take the journey with me
And try to find that spark again,
The reason for the season,

If we’re lucky, we’ll find it together,

See you tomorrow.

  1. A great quest -- and one that can maybe move more of us in a good direction. Micky Santa is upbeat anyway! Send us some small sparks! xoxoxo Judy
