Christmas Poem

Grief On Christmas Without Loved Ones

Christmas was once a happy time of the year, but since losing my mother in 2005, then my wife in 2010, all that's left are memories.
Grief never goes we learn to live with it. Christmas day is the toughest time.

Christmas Memories

‚ÄčIt's such a warming Feeling
Being surrounded by Christmas
Expectation fills the Air.
The sparkle the Glitter
Presents under the Tree
With loved ones our dreams we Share.

The sound of Christmas Carols
Choirs singing silent Night.
A time to Reflect
And thank God Above
As we herald the most holy Night.

A time to remember loved Ones
Who we have lost along the Way.
Grief is a heavy Burden
Much more Poignant
Come Christmas Day.

As a child I believed in Santa
And that there was a God Above.
And as a Kid
They never once let me Down
If only they could bring back the ones I love.

All those Christmases spent Together
Now a family torn Apart.
A home now bathed in Silence
With only memories to warm the Heart.



I became a member of FamilyFriendsForum in 2011 one year after my wife Ann passed away. I share my thoughts through poetry, it helps with the pain of grieving. God Bless. A poems but a Whisper That lingers on the Breeze. A few unspoken Words Appear like falling Leaves. A tapestry of Memories Dreams that haunt the Mind Jumbled words scrambled Thoughts Borrowed from the passing of Time. John Read.
