”Christmas Eve Away From Home” by Eureka C. Bianzon

Joyous day clamor from bells ringing around

Sweet voices singing Christmas carol

Across the streets down town


Children were happy upon receiving gifts

Some make wishes through a silent prayer

Some greets everyone they meet

Family celebrates their happy moments together


Under the moonlight dreary

I got the chance to witness the Merry Christmas eve

I just woke up sighing with my eyes teary

Knowing that It was just only a dream


It is hard to be in overseas

Missing wonderful season away from home

I’m one of those who wishes to be with family each year

Whose longing to celebrate the Merry Christmas eve for so long
