Christmas Is Lonely Without You

Christmas Is Lonely Without You

A Poem by Deborah Leah Krempa

Christmas Is Lonely Without You

 

C hristmas is lonely without you

H olidays just aren't the same

R emembering when you were a little boy

I  wish I could turn back the hands of time

S pend just one more Christmas with you

T ears stream down my face when I think about it

M y heart aches more and more each passing day

A nother year has come and gone

S weetheart I miss you so very much

 

I dreamed I walked with you in shades of midnight blue

S treets lined with Christmas Trees all lit in different hues

 

L eaving me longing for the days of Christmas past

O n a lonely street I walk tonight

N ot a soul in sight

E xcept for one

L ady dressed in an aura of white light

Y oung maiden she sang of heaven's delight

 

W eep not for thee she cried out to me

I  did not understand this angel's plea

T he lord giveth and the lord taketh away

H alo adorns his head you see

O n gallant eagle's wings he soars

U p in the clouds his spirit resides

T hen I awoke from the dream

 

Y es I dreamed God gave me an angel when I held you in my arms

O n the day that you were born I was given such a precious gift

U nique and one of a kind and that gift was you my beloved son

It is just not possible for me to feel your pain because I'm finding it tough to even go through this poem. Yes, it is hard to read this.

There are some situations that you can never prepare yourself for. I don't think any parent ever imagines how would cope if such a thing happens. I don't think that if and when it happens, it is possible for them overcome this grief. Such wounds continue to hurt all through life.

I've told you before that I admire your strength. The fact that you're able to put down your emotions into words, that you're able to go on despite everything.

This is such a beautifully written piece. He must have been lucky to have a mother like you.

"Y es I dreamed God gave me an angel when I held you in my arms
O n the day that you were born I was given such a precious gift
U nique and one of a kind and that gift was you my beloved son"

Oh Deb this is a beautiful acrostic. So many wonderful stanzas,
you have done a great job. Sad and gutwrenchingly painful to
read, I have tears...

I agree with what Imperfection said "He must have been lucky to have
a mother like you" and he still is.

Having lost my mother almost 8 years ago, I can relate to your pain though the circumstances must have been entirely different. Parents are not supposed to survive their children, which makes a child's passing even more painful.
Reading your poem made me feel sad.
That is also why I had somewhat a hard time before reviewing.
Needless to say it really touched me.
I hope an angel is watching you somewhere from above.

Oh dear, I know your pain. I remember our last Christmas in every minute detail. On that Christmas we were told the cancer was gone. April it came back and David died in August. I must say it was the most joyful Christmas of my live. And it is a beautiful and so sad.

Y es I dreamed God gave me an angel when I held you in my arms

O n the day that you were born I was given such a precious gift

U nique and one of a kind and that gift was you my beloved son

Ever so powerful and very emotional this tugs at the heartstrings.

My favorite part is the dream. Beautiful image to be left with. Lovely write in spite of the sorrowful undertone.

Deb, this is the time that is hard when the ones we love are gone, it reminds us that they aren't here. This Thanksgiving I was with my sister and her family and my children, I took pictures and later when I was looking at them I said i can't wait to show these to mommy, My mother had been gone since 1993, it's funny how they stay so close in our hearts and the way the mind plays tricks on us.

People always seem to tell us it will get easier, I don't know about that, it just seems to hurt and feel lonely at different times.

God has made you strong and you will get pass this.

Line 3...'Remembering you when you were a little boy'...cracks me up. I have two young lads and I remember my own mother's love for me.

The reason for such a loss as yours can't be understood, and only God knows why it happened. Perhaps he needed a good angel in heaven.
