Yuletides Past

I used to watch for Christmas cards
Eagerly anticipate each new arrival,
Reading the printed sentiments longingly
Imagining emotions where are but words.

Distance has no proper solution
No cure for watering eyes,
Out of sight out of mind
So the saying justly goes,
Making outright lies of every promise
To hold on tight no matter times cruel passing.
