When the Boxes are Gone

The prompt for Writing Wednesday was “festive,” and I am combining it with this week’s SoCS: Box.

In the aftermath of Christmas,
When every box has been opened
And every bag has been unwrapped,
The festivities remain quietly
In my heart and memory.

And I wish, and I wish
That they would sing again
In the present, but I must accept
The gift I was given,
And the extent of it.
