I Lost My Christmas Cheer - Poem by Denis Kucharski

I lost my Christmas cheer
When mother died.
It ended when her heart stopped
And her skin yellowed
The ending of my happiness
And the beginning of the darkness.

With no children, no respite from pain
I look to my inflammed knees
My tortured soul
And wonder where the joy went.

It went by the wayside
When my faith in Christ died
And I lost hope
That life might bring goodness.

I felt the pain of the body
As the cancer ate away the soul
And left me with nothing
Except this outer shell.

I stand on the precipice of nothing
In this wintry place
Waiting for a summer
Which hasn't found its place.
