Writing Challenge: Dec 26, 2017

Prompt: Review your day, week, or month in a poem

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.”

He lied.

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.
