4:24 am christmas morning

My father is laying in a bed at the University Hospital.

My daughters are asleep next to my sister in the guest room at my parent's house.

My mother is sleeping on a futon at my apartment in downtown Salt Lake City.

I am laying awake on the sofa at my parent's house next to the christmas tree and Santa's deliveries.

My little girls' mother is at her house in Logan.

My sister's fiancé is in Phoenix, arms empty.

There is little semblance of christmas at my apartment where my mom is staying.

The university hospital offers even less.

My parent's house is an empty shell without them here.

We are all torn away from those we love this christmas day.
