'Twas the Day After Christmas
Looking back and looking forward

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

The families have gone.
The gifts put away.
One last look at the cards friends have sent.
I love the day after
to pause and reflect.
And as carols still play, I'm content.

It's a day to be quiet
and sit by the fire
while sifting through memories we've made.
I'm grateful for photographs
faded and torn
that capture the past on parade.

It's a day to be grateful
that Christmas extends
through the choices we make through the year.
The gift of our presence
with family and friends
is a treasure to those we hold dear.
