Coming Home For Christmas

Mrs Merryweather put coal on the fire,
while outside through the frosted windows
the snow was beginning to fall.

    David, i am sad, and at the same time happy for the mother because even in the death of her son, he still fulfil his promise to be with them if only for a short time. sometimes, we celebrate christmas so we can be united with our families, not remembering that Jesus was the main reason for the celebration. And i was given the strong message that inspite of what happen to our family, i will still celebrate Christmas, because it is the birthday of our Savoiur.This is a very wonderful piece of yours David..and you did justice in portraying a love of a mother, and a love of a son to a mother..The mother's love that cannot be measured, unfathomable, deep and timeless..Thank you David for the honor of reading this.

    your special friend,

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
