Holiday Memories


Holiday memories wrapped with love
Small gifts from God sent from above
With laughter and smiles, sprinkled with joy
A doll for the girls and a truck for the boys
Though this year memories won't be so bright
Without my family within my sight
Yet somehow I will find the will to go on
Though their faces won't be there come Christmas dawn
So often I sit at my tree, blue and white
And think of all those cold Christmas nights
Where my cousin and I would whisper and pray
That maybe that Christmas we'd see Santa's sleigh
The dinners, so great with turkey and dressing
And, uncle Mike would lead the blessing
Ah, but now those days are no longer here
I won't be able to hold those I hold so dear
So, I will quietly sit here at my tree and ponder
Of past holiday memories and past holiday wonder

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
