Missing You at Christmas

Everyday without you,
since you had to go,
Is like summer without sunshine
and winter without snow.

I wish that I could talk to you,
there is so much I want to say.
Life has changed so much,
since you went away.

I miss the bond between us
and I miss your kind support.
You are in my head and in my heart
and every Christmas thought.

I will always feel you close to me,
and though you are far from sight,
I'll search for you among the stars
that shine on Christmas night.

    Sally, do you know something that really helps me when I am so much missing my dear departed mother? While I am reclined I just close my eyes and visualize her and our arms around each other and imagine the love and joy I would feel were she actually here. I can even 'hear' or imagine the words she would speak and I say to her. Yes there are a few tears, but the overall experience gives me a feeling of comfort and I can go on.

    My precious mother would almost beg me to sit down and have a conversation with her when she was living with me the last few years of her life. I know she could see that I was running myself ragged trying to keep up with all my responsibilities and used that for an excuse to get me to sit down for a while. Well at least that was my take on it at the time.

    Now, I think it may have partly been that she actually felt neglected because I didn't sit and converse with her and tell her about my day and enquire about hers as much as I should have. For that I am regretful! However, I can make amends now and take the time to commune with her in the spirit. Not that she actually appears to me but that I can just imagine.

    I know she forgives me for my oft times neglect because I know being in the arms of Jesus washes away all sorrow. For me to visualize being in the arms of my dear mother, is like being in the arms of Jesus and it washes away the sorrow.

    I have no doubt that your darling Ben is on the other side just dreaming of the day he can be in the arms of his precious mother and tell you how much he loves you and appreciates you for all you did for him while he was on earth and that no matter your regrets, what ever they may be, (we all have them, even Ben) he knows you both did the very best you could because you loved each other beyond words and still do

    Maybe you have already made it happen in your dreams. If not Sally my dear, do it today. It is wonderful therapy. May God bless you with peace in knowing your precious son is in the everlasting arms of His love. I know your faith brings you a great deal of comfort but it doesn't keep you from missing Him.

    Thank you for the pinwheel. Comes at a good time. They finally decided to give Dad morphine...just so tired of seeing the suffering. Even if my Dad hasn't passed yet, this poem fits because I feel I can no longer communicate with him. The effort is so great, that I'm just relieved to be able to watch him sleep.

    Sorry that Ben can't pick up the phone. Maybe someday we'll be able to be full with the ones we love.
