goodbye to old traditions

I try to focus
on all that's good
in my life
and when I'm not alone
it all comes
so clearly into view
today is Christmas
presents wrapped
fake fire burning on the TV
classic christmas tunes
on the stereo
but it just isn't
like it used to be
I understand why
people feel so alone
at this time of year
I know that trying
to recapture that Christmas feeling
is just hanging on
to old traditions that no longer exist
time to create new ones
so I can remember
what it feels like
to be filled with joy
during this joyous time of year
