Holiday Blues

Holiday Blues

A Poem by BBP

Holiday Blues
Got me thinkin' of you

Your smile flashes through the bright lights
and I know it always will
Sometimes the memories are harder to swallow
than a ten pound pill

As coldness creeps in
and the saints try not to sin
As the jingle bells ring
and my sad heart tries to sing

Promise me you'll comfort me
with your sweet embrace
and your smiling face

As I stare at the star that I claimed for you in the sky
Please promise you'll comfort me as I remember you and cry

You may be gone from this place 
that we still walk 
But you'll never be forgotten because
your memories still talk

They talk to me many times a day
But their always shaded in blue during 
this......melancholy holiday

'Cause these Holiday Blues
Got me thinkin' of you

This is so awesome! I've written several for my best friend (RIP) but nothing coming close to this heartfelt tribute. I love the way you SHOW instead of tell, how the "missing" manifests using vivid details of the melancholy routine. I truly believe our angels are nearby, to help us get by. I also love your unstructured rhymes (to show people its okay to be free with rhyme!) Thanks for sharing your heart in a beautiful poem (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

sorry to hear it
Beautifully captured tribute. Once, holidays were happy events, but can also be tinged with sadness for those gone, who fill your mind with happy memories of when they were here. I think bittersweet is the correct term for these days.

Thank you! Special times will always have a tinge of missing the ones we love that have gone.
This is absolutely beautiful, BBP. I hope someone remembers me with this much affection when I am gone! Very touching.

You're welcome, my friend.
Sad. I'm always blue every Christmas and Thanksgiving but I haven't lost anyone like you have. Holidays are always sad reminders.

Good expression in this BBP.

Sometimes, lost love lasts the longest.
Poignant reverie with which we all can relate.
Tenderly conveyed, B!

Remembering is the last gift we can give them.
"Sometimes the memories are harder to swallow

Aye, so true. This was quite a touching write and I somehow already knew who it was about before reading your note.
Been a while since I read one of your pieces, Bev! Hope you are well :)
