What's in the Box? by Tara

I was walking today
Watching people as they walked by.
Mother and buggy-laden down with their parcels-
Manoeuver the bins and people standing chatting.
Wind piercingly cold, bitterly whipping us,
Keeping us conscious.

I was thinking today-of Christmas past, present
And to come.
Memories flooding my mind, distracting me from
Tasks at hand.

Why even Pandora couldn't keep a lid
On such a curiosity.
Released now the magic has vanished.
But occasionally - just occasionally - recaptured
In the buying and selling, eating and drinking,
Giving and receiving, that is Christmas.

'Tis a pity.
In a flash I would return to Christmas past
Accompanied by the Ghost - only to relive those happy
Times - perhaps make amends.

But the childlike innocence of Christmas Night
Is but a distant, pleasant memory
Stored in a box.
To be opened occasionally, its contents examined,
Memories recalled and a smile shared.
