Missing You at Christmastime
In Loving Memory Christmas Poem
We’re missing you at Christmastime...
When the world is filled with cheer
As families gather to celebrate
Cherished time with loved ones dear
We face each day with sadness
Considering how much our lives have changed
Trying to retain any whispers of you
Realizing that ‘Christmas’ will no longer be the same
We go through the motions…or at least we try
With hearts breaking that you won’t be near
And we find ourselves thinking of Christmases past
When this emptiness wasn’t here
When you were alive and well with us
And in festivities, took active part
Sharing the arrival of Christmas morn
Enjoying gifts planned from the heart
When your laughter rang out like silver bells
That pierced the starry, winter sky
When you warmed our souls with your goodness and love
When you were precious-close, nearby
But now you have gone to that better place
That we have not yet known
And have left such a hole, it can’t be replaced
In our hearts, our family, our home
Yet Christmas is more than presents
More than lights and the beauties we see
Christmas is a sacred promise
That Christ came to make us free
Came to pay for sins and sorrows
Born to free us from death and pain
Our future reunion now certain
Someday he’ll rejoin us in heaven again
So until that glorious day…
Sing that you’re safe in the carols
That sweetly fill the air
May these melodies carry your love to us
Lift our hearts from this burdened care
Shine bright in all the Christmas lights
Filling houses, nativities, and streets
And may this light shine upon our souls
Inspire us with comforting peace
May the snow that falls from heaven
Cover earth in soft blankets of white
Reminding us that death is nothing but sleep
Before God gives us eternal life
And if we feel lonely, may we honor you
By reaching out to others in need
Sharing the very best part of you
Through kind words and giving loving deeds
Most of all, come to us in the spirit of Christmas
Help us feel this season’s sweet embrace
May it enter our hearts and give us strength
As we treasure your mem’ry, while trusting God’s grace
And every year at Christmastime
May you be closer and clearer to see
In the beauties of this special season
Through the blessings that each Christmas brings
