Snowflakes

The lights and the glitter

The tinsel and tears

Something is missing

And it has been for years

-

The candles, the presents

The bells and the laughter

The silence and emptiness

That follows after

-

Time to appreciate

Days to engross

Time to feel cold

To indulge in your woes

-

Coming together

For holiday cheer

Snowflakes that fall

Year after year

-

An empty box

Nothing inside

The hole in my heart

You left when you died

The End
