HOLIDAY BLUES: 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE COUNSELING
'twas the night before counseling, when all through my head my thoughts were racing like a kid on a sled. The reds and the greens of the season were there, but for me, shades of blue popped up everywhere.
The kids, cat and dog were all snug as a bug, yet as I pondered life, I only could shrug. Was it sorrow or grief? I couldn’t be sure. My one Christmas wish was to just find a cure.
I heard it mentioned before: holiday blues. The source I didn’t know, so I looked for clues. Away to the window I flew like a flash; tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
Just the darkness of night with no clues in sight. Was I all alone in my blue-holiday plight? A twinkle from lights and the glisten from snow, but the source of my gloom, I just didn’t know.
The dampness on my heart I just couldn’t kick. Thanks Finnegan Counseling Center – that’s Nick. While I worried and wondered: what would they think? Most important was change; I was on the brink.
Happy to know that counselors don’t judge, I knew mine would be there to give me a nudge. Realizing that on my heart was a lesion, ‘twas time to tackle my blues; ‘tis the season.
Excited yet nervous I crawled back in bed, as visions of a new me danced in my head. Happy I called in hopes of finding a fix: 713-402-5046.
