All I Wanted for Christmas

Monday, January 14, 2008




Dark scary December night
Cold. Dry. Miles long
Eyes full of pain, lips wearing a smile
"For you my baby ", you said, "I will fight "

Keeping your promise
you fought on
Long days, full of pain
Longer nights, when I sat by your side

Your hands, growing cold, kept me warm
"I am scared ",
clutching you,
I whispered in the dark

Smiling the pain away,
You asked in the voice so faint
"It’s a week to Christmas,
What do you want for that day? "

I had so much to say,
you had so much to hear
I never got to tell you,
I wanted to look like you one day

The angels were arriving, the sky turning a faint blue
So many wishes I had
But all I wanted for Christmas,
was you.

Dear oh dear! I felt a trickle of tear running down my cheek as I reached the end of this poem. My heart feels very heavy. I remembered the Mystical Angel (which of course you are very well aware of) - I can hear my heart cry the same way it did when I wrote that poem, in fact it pains more so today than that fateful day.

There will be no praises for this poem as it would look like I am saying "I love the tragedy!" However, I must say that the pain has been so intense that these words were forged with the power to transmit the same vibes to its readers.
