The closer Christmas approaches
The more I feel you near.
Memories won’t stop unfolding
And it’s leaving me in tears.
You’re ghosting all the corners
Of every single room
Tis the season of light and merriment
And I’m deep in grief and gloom
I’m hearing snatches of your voice
As if your still here with me
I see the brightness of your love
in the lights on the Christmas tree
I don’t know how to do this
The holidays without you
How do I heal this ache in my soul
And figure out what to do.
This poem doesn’t want to be finished. I’ve been trying for several days now, and this is where it wants to end. Maybe once I get through this challenging time I’ll be able to look back and come up with an ending, I don’t know.
