Not a creature was stirring ... except for my spouse.
I heard the alarm go off with a scream.
I opened one eye interrupting my dream.
"Wake up ... you big lug" I heard Debbie say,
"It's already six ... now get on your way."
Daughter Alissa was out of her bed
But visions of sugar plums were still in my head.
I stumbled around and felt for my clothes.
It was dark and was cold as I looked for my toes.
I opened the door to the bedroom with care
And there was Alissa with suitcases there.
We loaded the trunk and started the car
I finally woke up when we hadn't gone far.
I spotted the airport and followed the sign
I stopped at the gate and got there on time.
Just about then, I heard Lissa say,
"I don't want to go back ... Dad can I stay?"
With a lump in my throat I managed to smile.
I hugged her and told her to "Stay for a while."
We both knew the answer ... we said our goodbyes.
She was my baby again in my eyes.
