Christmas Eve Tonight

by Simeon Koh

Christmas Eve tonight
Christmas day tomorrow
Why does my heart anticipate
Christmas day tomorrow?

For the Santa who’s not coming?
For the gifts I received early?
For the family I see daily?
For the food I have abundantly?

For the Southern California snow?
For the end of another year?
For childhood memories?
For the birth of Jesus Christ?

Christmas Eve tonight
Christmas day tomorrow
Why does my heart anticipate
Christmas day tomorrow?
