Missing You

The Christmas tree is up the decorations all hung The errands almost completed right on time Yesterday it snowed for the first time this winter All along the eastern coast a winter wonderland Long and hard it fell wind- tossed everywhere Now fine powder- packed and piled twenty inches high! Today, it is shimmers like fine crystal glistening in the bright noon sun Enough to warm your Sunshine but not enough to warm Her heart as her thoughts again turn to you Missing you so! It hurts holding on to that last mail I read Again and again I commit to memory every word I am sending you messages via ESP whispering your name Tears flow easy and I am feeling blue This Christmas and New Year will be the worst I’ve ever had Without you here I will not light the fireplace because I will not see the firelight dance in your brown eyes Nor that quirky smile you wear so well as you reach To take my hands wanting to dance to Marc Anthony’s “My Baby You” Tonight I will light a candle and place it in the window Praying that you will see it through your mind’s eye and know that Just a little way up north you are loved in return just as you are As always I will be the warmth you feel on your skin God willing throughout the years to come I am missing you terribly!
