In the corner there is a brightly lit Christmas tree,
Presents under it in piles of one, two, three.
Mommy is on the phone with tears in her eyes,
Daddy is sitting in the living room and all I can hear is cries.

All I am doing is sitting there,
Cuddling my giant bear,
Wondering what could have happened,
That made mommy and daddy be saddened.

Then I wonder when brother is coming home,
School is almost over, he should be knocking down the gnome.
But that was the day he never came back,
And that's when my world went black.

That year on Christmas morning,
All of my family came together in mourning.
Originally I wasn't going to post anything, but this is to everyone, including my teacher, who was affected by what happened in Connecticut on December 14th, 2012. My thoughts go out to everyone. Have a better tomorrow.

I think you should make the title different, so that way
the reader has to figure what's wrong :3

Thanks for reading it Leli :) It really is a tragic thing, and it just brought back thoughts from Nicholas and stuff back from a thousand moons ago.
