This is heartfelt and so sad! We are grieving still for daddy; we don't really feel the joy of Christmas without him in our lives. Yet he is still with us, and he's with mom; we have two guardian angels keeping watch over us. Very well expressed emotion; brava!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :( >tears! <

A fine tribute to your daddy, Karla...they make a difference, Dad's do! :)
Love and PEace~
Have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS! I have no tree, decorations, etc either...Let's get creative! :)

|This brought tears to my eyes. The pain is fresh... It brought thoughts of my dad who was supposed to spend Christmas with our family, but due to a hospital stint this past weekend due to a bleeding ulcer, will not be able to come. I already mourn what we will miss...not having him here with us. It was the first Thanksgiving without my mom that was incredibly hard on me. This poem also brought back lots of wonderful Christmas memories when I was young... Thanks for sharing, Karla.
