Christmas Eve

When I was a kid Christmas Eve seemed to be the longest day. I was so excited that the clock seemed to stop turning. It was the only night of the year I wanted to go to bed early so that Christmas Day would come sooner! 

Today’s poem tries to capture the excitement of the night before Chrsitmas; 

Christmas Eve

Tick tock, tick tock

The hands turned slowly

Tick tock tick tock

It was not that I was holy

Tick tock tick tock

Would Santa ever come

Tick tock tick tock

Be patient said my mum

Tick tock tick tock

Pillowcase put in place

Tick tock tick tock

A spare one just in case

Tick tock tick tock

A peek into the sky

Tick tock tick tock

Is he coming I do cry?

Tick tock tick tock

Time to go to bed

Tick tock tick tock

Cuddle up with ted

Tick tock tick tock

Too excited to sleep

Tick tock tick tock

One eye open to peep

Tick tock tick tock

Christmas can’t come too fast

Tick tock tick tock

Fast asleep at last

Tick tock tick tock

Dark still outside

Tick tock tick tock

Excitement cannot hide

Tick tock tick tock

Santa’s been hurray

Tick tock tick tock

At last it’s Christmas Day
