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 Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
