A Christmas Wish - Poem by Monica Engeler

And so it is Christmas time.
Another twelve months are gone.
Where are you this Christmas?
I believe you set off on another life.

I see a glowing smile in my dreams.
My heart is calling you for the jubilee.
Please return home from your realm?
Things don’t look the way they seem.

I failed to see you for seven seasons.
A feast would be ideal for your return.
Forlorn eyes above see us having fun.
Come home, the bells toll for this reason.

I am sorry Christmas will be lonely again.
Bursts run down expressing the sadness.
Ring a ling; I have rung the bells anyway.
Rest peacefully with out any pain.

Merry Christmas and best wishes Dad,
And a very grand and Happy New Year.
Let there be peace and riches on earth,
And a new beginning that is not bad.

    merry xmas and a happy new year, this is a good poem because it is raw. i like poets who write from the bottom of the heart because the bottom of the heart is keyed on to all humanity. (Report)Reply
