The moment is gone; it was right here!
I cherished the time; I knew it was dear.
The colorful lights, ribbons, and bows,
the decorations, songs, and hoping for snow.
The tree now lies still, barren, and worn,
out in the yard…it’s ornaments shorn.
Paper and boxes are their encasement,
all stored away, down in the basement.
Until next year, it is all put away,
ready to celebrate another holiday.
