Beautiful and tender, with such real emotion and poignancy. Lovely.
This one packed a real emotional punch. I could feel the mc's sorrow so clearly and then his joy when his daughter came home. I like how the Christmas story was such a central part.

So much emotion in this piece. Great writing.

Love the title and the melancholy mood of this tender story.
Very poignant. I thought at first the person at the door might be one of the neighbors your MC was watching. I was pleasantly surprised it was his daughter, though. Nicely done.
This was just beautiful! You captured the emotions of your MC wonderfully. Having spent a few Christmases on my own, I can understand his feelings. I loved your ending. Lovely, just lovely.

Bittersweet describes this just perfectly. I liked the father/daughter combo of characters best, but the sadness is so sweet, yet...SAD at the same time. I loved the ending best. ^_^

Wonderful, pulls the heart strings but concludes with a happy ending.
