Christmas Folly

Merriment abounds
And music fills the air
And in the cosy room
I’d hoped to see you there

Friends and loved ones
Surround me, old and new
I wished that one of them
Might have been you

Outside its cold
On this Christmas Eve
When the party's over
I won’t want to leave

But I will head home
Trudging through the snow
And in my loneliness
I’ll wonder how I let you go

A slightly ambiguous poem in so far as it's not clear whether the protagonist's lonely Christmas in prospect is the result of losing or splitting up with a partner.
