on this Christmas Eve

on this Christmas Eve
although replete
with serenity and peace
it would be blatantly false to surmise
nothing's amiss for those somewhat torn
and thus remiss,
devoid of hands given or held
so too lips not kissed fervid nor ardent
or even simply with tenderest love
for such is their life
this day or otherwise one
less sacred or exalted
and yet it shall continue to be lived
plainly and enjoyed, not simply

on this Christmas Eve
