Holiday cheer

The holiday cheer is here

everyone swept up in celebration

yet those left behind

feel lonelier than ever

Frozen hearts

stuck in rapture of the past

Wishful minds

Thinking tomorrow will be better

The forced holiday cheer

seems apparent to few

who wonder what’s so special

about this day in the year

Where do they all come

from myth or from mind

and bring much needed

importance to our lives

Yet they bring thankful rest

to our busy mindless lives

A reprise from the hectic

lives that we live

But don’t you ever wonder

what made this day so

special, full of meaning

to the persons all over

I don’t mean to dull

your special odd days

just don’t get hung up

on just a few days

All other days can be special

you just have to stop

and look around

Be thankful

be grateful

for seeing this day

Don’t wish for tomorrow

because tomorrow

is another day

      A different perspective is always soul enriching. Indeed we get hung up on these occasions and await event which will bring automatic happiness, effortless cheer. In doing this we definitely limit the endless, boundless joy which can be taken simply from looking around with new eyes.

      But then, there is also this: if each day is full of joy, we won't value the happiness. :)

      Balance is a good word for sure.
