Alone With My Holiday Tears
26 December, 2000
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Sitting again alone with my holiday tears
Another holiday finally done
Everything given, nothing gained
All my wishes left unfulfilled

I held onto the hope
This year would not be the same
As so many holidays before
But it was all just a Christmas dream

I held my tears back
And pulled silently at my hair
Holding back my silent screams
As I felt my heart break once again

It's just another day
As they ask "Why don't you have a tree?"
For what? Wrapped pretty empty boxes
To hold the broken holiday promises

I watch as friends compare they're takes
Each playing happy and complete
I sit and pray they don't even ask
So they don't feel sorry for me

It's okay, I tell myself
As I wipe away another tear
I hold onto the joy I've given
And after all... there's always next year
