This Christmas will be different,
To any other year.
But I feel very confident
That I can hide my fear.
I'm determined not to let you know,
I'm lonely without you.
I'll be fine until after you go,
So this is what I'll do.
I'll smile when you ring the bell,
And welcome you with a hug.
If you should ask me how I feel
I'll probably just shrug
“I've been keeping myself busy”
I've had too much time to think
I'm not looking forward to the future
Quite frankly, my options stink
You won't see me unhappy
I won't think of myself
I think of you this Christmas
Even though you are somewhere else

I had to read it through a few times to find the right rhythm for it; it doesn't seem to flow right off the page, but once I found the rhythm, it reads very nicely.
It's got quite a sad feel to it, even before you get to the twist at the last line. I liked it.

ps - m.e.m: thank you for the flurry of reviews on my poems here; caught me by suprise when they call came in my mailbox at once. *grin*
