Christmastime - Poem from "Reflections in The Midst of Time"


My heart is filled with joy
At the most wonderful time of the year.

Jingle bells and snow covered trees
With lights flickering
And stars shining bight.

Its Christmastime once again.

All the world is waiting to hear
The sound of music filling their ears.

Carolers going through each city,
Singing songs of cheer,
Of peace on earth,
Good will toward men.

Its Christmastime once again.

Children laughing,
Their eyes are full of wonder.
Toys and presents.
Love and comfort.

This is the time between a Day of Thanks
And the beginning of a New Year.

This is the time above our yesterdays
And bitter sorrows.

This is a time to reflect
On those memories that beckon our embrace.

Christmastime once before.

Not too far from here
And ever-present still.

Hold on to the warmth
Of each song you hear,
The subtle touch of peace
The season will bring.

Christmastime is here for you.

To turn your heart toward home
In a place where dreams
Are waiting to come true.

From time
And time again,

Within my heart,
I say to everyone:
Merry Christmas to all
And to all a goodnight.

Poem: Insomnia


In the middle
Of the night,
My eyes
Both red
and dry,
Are afraid to close.

Afraid to forget you.

You lay there
Dreaming of a better way.

Without me?


With all we been through?

For sure.

Don't put me back.
Don't let me go.

I am awake.
Wide awake.

Don't you understand?

I'm not sleeping.

I don't want to dream of another,
I only want

Always here.
Always by my side.

I am forever scared to lose you.

For this,
And all that is yet to come,
My eyes
may never close.
