Christmas Tree

Every year you're dragged up the stairs for us to decorate
With your tall, green structure
And your bright, shiny, hue

Every year we gather around you
Chatting and exchanging stories
to escape the cold atmosphere around us

We decorate you with thousands of lights and ornaments
Put a little star on your head
And fit tons of presents underneath you

We bake a feast and eat around you
For you are the center of our attention

And even though we will have to pack you away soon
Pictures of us remain up around the house

Even though we get presents from underneath you
The best present you bring
Are memories with our family
