Day Chosen- Dec 16
He tells me he won’t make it.
I had been singing “Home for Christmas” for days,
And he will be-
Home for Christmas, that is-
Just not for my birthday.
“I tried” he says, and I understand.
I knew it might not happen, so I tell him I love him.
“I’m moving anyway.” I reply.
“I’d be too busy to really see you.”
Flying out the night before-
He surprised me the morning I turned 24.
He helped me move my bed and bookshelves.
He met my new friends at my birthday dinner
And held me that night.
I hum “Home for Christmas” as I stroke his hair.
