Christmas Memories

Christmas Memories


Red holly berries lay on a snow covered grave, I wipe away the tears, and slowly drive away.


Christmas memories tug at my heart; they are all that remain now that we are apart.


I watch other people celebrating the season, but for my broken spirit I can’t find a reason.


The decorations once merry and filled with light, have lost their magic, they don’t shine as bright.


Everywhere I go I see you there, the pain is too fresh, too much to bear.


Perhaps next year when I look at the tree, time will have healed those Christmas memories.

      I lost my father near Christmas many years ago, this still rings true today. Even though I have four wonderful boys that help heal Christmas spirit, I still have a little tug to remember those that we loose that are close to us. Nice poem.

      Your poem is beautiful in its sorrow and yet carries hope.

      Your poignant words strike a cord with me. I have suffered through moments when I can't understand when the world goes on.
