A dress of Christmas past
The stockings have been pillaged,
the kids big and small off playing with their gifts,
and a monster nap taken by the parents.
All in all a lovely day.
Now to make it complete,
I put on this Laura Ashley dress to remember Christmas past.
The last time I wore this dress in the 80′s,
everyone I loved was alive, or a future twinkle in my eye.
This is my comfort for missing them,
to enjoy some things that we all enjoyed together.
Merry Christmas to you,
and may nostalgia be part of your celebration
so your loved ones are always with you.
