Poem Of The Day
Holiday Absences
there is never a celebration
where a presence isn't missed
whether an empty chair
or a space in our hearts
there is the wistfullness and wishfullness
for the someone not sitting beside us.
somehow, reaching into memory
for the presence
seems hollow
and makes the space that much larger.
try to reach farther within
past memory
to appreciation.
notice the parts of them
within yourself,
gifts that will be there
notice their being
in those that surround you
and know that they never really left.
