Christmas Eve Eve

Got out of work at 2pm today--
Happy elf was I!
I think I floated to my car--
Eventho it the wind a chill in the air--
I did not care.
It is almost Christmas.
Bittersweet memories of the
750 mile drive to Iowa with
Two cats, at the time, to keep me company--
I still smile tho, my dad enjoyed those cats
Eventho my step-mother didn't share so much comfort and joy!

Anyway, it's two days before Christmas
And I smile at those little girl memories
Of a time long ago...
