Read Poems by
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.
