Cards upon cards in the drawer
relics of years and years past:
2006 just as faded as 2010

Smiling elves and glittering candy canes
losing their magic touch,
just as I've lost connection with old acquaintances

They were once so lurid, but now so forgotten,
those nostalgic years,
years I'll never get back

I put them away, my fingers skimming the raised designs,
playing the dying soundtrack,
knowing there'd be more cards to come but at the end of the decade they'd all meet the same fate
