Life's Blessings And Heartaches At Christmas

I am a typical mother, wife, aunt, daughter, sister, and I can only share from my very own experiences in life the things that are special to me. I hope to touch the heart of another human soul. This particular poem is about the nearing Christmas season. Christmas can be a very joyous time but also a very sad time of year for so many. I think that many people will relate to my feelings in this poem.

Today, December 23rd, another Christmas nears.
I try to keep tradition up while holding back my tears.

I know I have been blessed for all the many years
of love and joy and family and times we had to share.

The presents wrapped, the tree is lit, the wreath upon the door,
but pondering all the Christmases past and tears begin to fall.

This Christmas will be different,
for some very special loved ones have received God's final call.

Then I dry my tears and say a special prayer.
Dear God, my gift to you is that soul I loved so dear.

I thank you for their life and love
I was so blessed to share.

Now all that I can ask of you is to keep them in your care!
I also want to offer you my each and every tear.

Now I promise to make Christmas joy for those I still have here
and put a smile upon their face while we have time to share.

Amen
