There will be many homes that will still wrap a gift that will not be opened.
This year,
with no doubt
there are gifts wrapped that were intended to be opened,
but never will be.
With a mother wondering what to do with the wrapped box in the top of the closet.
She might take years to move it.
This town is forever changed.

We may move on,
but for a small town in the northeast
the Christmas lights will have a tinge of mourning.
And a sad play on words will taint the delight of children's clambering feet
of the children left behind
for they have learned the word mourning
before they learned of Santa.

God have mercy.
