Treasure Island

Roger Horsch

Alone on Christmas Day


I knelt down by my bedside
then I bowed my head to pray
I ask you Lord, why must I be
alone on Christmas day?

I have no children of my own
I have no loving wife
Why must I be alone like this?
why must I live this life?

A life lived mostly by myself
at one time felt so grand
But, now I'm so much older
and, I just don't understand

Why it is...that this must be
for I know...you love me so
Please answer me this question
'cause I have a need to know

I thought I'd be alone this day
Then, I heard the church bells chime
That's when I realized, I was never alone
'cause you've been with me all the time

    Very intense and heartfelt poem. It sounds like the church bells chiming were a sign that you weren't alone, and that maybe you were being invited to go to church to be with others like yourself who were also alone on Christmas Day. God does work in mysterious ways. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Your poetry is really good, I like what I've read so far. Keep writing, it helps you keep track of where you are in life - I know it helps me a lot. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
