Channukah

Written by: Matthew Anish

A nice holiday 
   more people should celebrate it 
Sometime I feel isolated 
   a a lone Channukah 
observer 
    But my electric 
menorah will illuminate 
    may soul 
And yes, if falls 
     near the other holiday 
But it is different 
     in many ways 
Better or worse - who cares
     the holiday season 
            for both faiths 
is a time 
    where you miss the presence 
            of loved ones 
who 
have
gone - into the shadows 
    The trip 
from which there is no return
