on my pajamas

red ribbon on her 2 yr old curls

smiley face dimples colored across white paper

star stickers on my head

chocolate icing

on my fingers

walls echoing laughter

from 9 squeezed in tight ’round the tree

8 chairs here, 4 chairs there

elbows dirty dancing

pass the mash potatoes please

tin foil for the kitkats

they like christmas dinner too

little girl hands raised for the aunty pick-up

older experienced hands wrapping ’round my face

for the daughter loving

and one balancing tear

for goodbye, mom & dad
