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
