    Alone For The Holidays

    Holidays Not As Much Fun Anymore

    Holidays are not as much fun because my parents,aunts,uncles,grandfathers most are passed on the few living are too busy or too far away. Have a little enjoyment with one of my sisters but it's not the same as family getting together for Christmas.

    Its So Hard... When I Don't See Her.

    I dont like holidays as much anymore... because i always have to spend so much time grieving because i miss her so much... I just wish she was here, with me, always. I know I'd never get sick of her... School is what keeps us together, even though i hate it.
