Missing you at Christmas

 getting through the holidays is 
always very tough. the memories 
that we have of you never seem to 
be enough . we think of you in 
silence and often speak your name 
but since you been away from us 
things have never been the same. On 
this day we all still gather but there's 
a missing treasured voice. We would 
hear the sound of your laugh if we 
have another choice. We carry you 
inside of hearts everywhere we go. 
You may be gone but not forgotten 
and that you need to know. It shows 
on all our faces , everyone of us 
aware, though it may be just in spirit 
but we all knew that you were there.
