I missed a week of advent

I missed a week of advent
as if it disappeared
or maybe never happened

I was in another place
with decorations and
carols all around
and greetings of cheer
from nice, new people
friendly, but unfamiliar

I sat in hotels, meetings and planes
that little convinced my heart or
soul of the soon coming day

I have returned home  
bearing an unseen weight
of responsibilities and
expectations with slight chance
I’ll catch up
or be caught up
