See you next year! ๐ŸŽ„

Wondering what next year will bring?
I may be old and fragile
and in a delicate condition
but I'm a trusted family heirloom
an essential Christmas tradition

I witness so much perched up high
some things I shouldn't see ๐Ÿคญ
don't worry Iโ€™ll keep them to myself
Your secrets are safe with me ๐Ÿ˜‰

I've watched the generations
leave and fly the nest
and noticed over christmasses
their visits less and less

I'm watching closely high above
It gives a sense of power
to watch the festive shenanigans
from my observation tower

I've seen many changes over the years
from those simple clockwork toys
a dolls pram for the daughters
or a trainset for the boys

It's now gone โ€˜all electronicโ€™
with ipads tablets and phones
streaming on Sky Glass tellyโ€™s
and taking out huge loans ๐Ÿ™€

I go back into my original box
softly padded out with tissue
I'll be back out again next year
for the story to continue....
