Welcome to My Poetry Site
This is a special day of cheer
But loved ones seem so far from here.
I’m glad for love that fills my life
Yet absence plays a piercing fife.
Alone inside these walls of warmth
Reflections sing of joy performed
I close my eyes to sharpen thus
The image of my time with us.
Somewhere inside this silent room
I feel your pull to me resume.
Emboldened by my sense of loss,
I seek the One who passed the cross.
Just stay with me this morning whole
And I won’t feel this gaping hole.
Together we will dance supreme,
Till refreshed souls begin to gleam.
One day I soon will hug them tight.
The wait endured will smiles ignite.
But I’ll recall my dance with you,
And twirl inside with gratitude.
