‘Twas The Night Before Counseling

'twas the night before counseling, when all through my head
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

My kids and our pets were all snug as a bug
I tossed and turned but only could shrug
Was it sorrow or grief? I couldn’t be sure
My one Christmas wish was to just find a cure

I’d heard someone say it: holiday blues
The source I didn’t know, so I looked for clues
Nothing on social media could I find
It’s like I had conjured it up in my mind

Only darkness outside with no clues in sight
If I was all alone then #goodnight
But I saw a glimmer. Was it hope or snow?
The source of my gloom, I simply did not know

The dampness on my heart I knew I could 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
