Highlight of the Season

For Pop-Pop

Christmas Eve was never the highlight of the season
   Food no one wanted to touch
   Trash no one wanted to associate with
   Smells no one wanted to question
But this year without it
It doesn’t feel like
   Christmas Eve
I may not want that other stuff
But I would gladly sit through it
Just to see you again
I never realized it, but seeing you on
Christmas Eve was always the highlight of the season
