I can only tell you my story and let you form your own conclusions.I don't know how else to make you understand what it was like.
I always wanted to live out side the box..you know? I wanted to be free to shine in every way possible. "Oh you're so beautiful" they said,
people will flock to lay gifts at your feet.
Well it didnt turn out that way. I spent most of my time alone. Then one night I heard her whisper , "when I met you...angels tiptoed in and
hung christmas lights around my heart". I wanted to cry. If you were close to me you might be shocked if I cried. I've never been the
crying type. I myself had always hoped to feel special. Her whisperings stunned me and made me think. Its true that sometimes choices
had to be made between food and medicine. Mostly the money went for bills like heating the cold winter nights. I guess I just expected more.
On christmas there were no gifts. No one could afford gifts. Some how though she made me feel so special." Look at the christmas tree lights",
One day I may not be here for christmas anymore. Promise me you will always remember that I told you how angels hung christmas lights around
my heart when I met you." I will always love you", she said." Now and forever beyond death.... promise me you will always light the lights and
think of me and how I loved you". I heard every word. However she wasnt speaking to me. She was speaking to her beloved. I only over heard from my
corner in the room. I realize now that gifts at me feet really don't matter. Love is what matters. I only wish I knew love. I guess I will
spend the rest of my life just being proud that I can shine a light on her love.
You see......I am the last christmas tree. Im small but I have beautiful lights. Im still living in the box most of the time , but I can wait
more patiently now. I am the last christmas tree they will ever share. I will shine on which ever one of them is left and hope that I help
them to remember..................
