Pictures On The Wall - Poem by Monette Paul

I sent this poem to al my children, they all came home
for Christmas. Pictures on the wall
Is all I see
Wish I could see them all
All gone and married
Moved to another state
Left me alone
With their pictures to face
Holidays come
Holidays go
May get a letter today
Who knows
Just another excuse
They make and break
Pictures on the wall
For me to face
Christmas is about to come
Hate for the holidays
to begin
One got to work
Others snowed in
Pictures on the wall
To face again
