Did you see Christmas?

I'm not quite sure how it'll be

Thin or fat, dark or fair
Last he walked here, Twenty-fifteen or so


Did you see Christmas?
Vicissitude of times annex,
Very Unkind, with a soothing grip,
Gatecrashing, with a thousand tones of prickly weights


Did you see Christmas?
I can't hear the rhythms ring
O, precious moments lost
And nightmare loom,
Why didn't Christmas, my home abode?


Did you see Christmas?
Family tree uncalled, everyone of you I miss.
Buried in the kin, our darkest hour,
Miles away I hear it's Christmas today.
