Because Nov. 23 until Dec. 22, is really Fall, I am referring to this as Un-Winter Cup

Christmas Split In Two
Christmas split in two
Dragged apart at the seams
I was the bit of popcorn fluff
Bounced around within the family dynamic.
Christmas Eve with my Dad
Spending the evening with his aunt,
Uncle and cousins;
Receiving a $5 bill
In a Back to BC comic book.
Going home at 11 o'clock...
Way past my bedtime
Then waking at 1 am
And asking if it's time to get up
Daddy saying 'go back to bed'
Then managing to sleep until 7 am.
Christmas Day we went to Mom's
And Dad stayed for a while,
Then he was gone...
Until Boxing Day
When we traveled further north
To Timmins to see my Grandparents.
That was my first Christmas
After my parents separated
And life changed...
Christmas and my family
Split in two.
