For all those grieving a loss this holiday season, know you are not alone. Our hearts are always heavier during the festive times because their absence is much more evident. My prayers to you and your families.
I went by to see you today…
Went by to see you today, it’s getting close to Christmas
Wanted to fill you in, tell you what’s happening with us.
I talked about the kids a bit, my job and all that stuff
Went on and on about money, how there never seems enough.
It’s getting cold outside so the conversation was shorter than wished
But I wanted you to know how much you are loved and missed
I knelt down to brush the dirt and leaves away off the stone’s hearth
And to once again say “it’s lonely without you here on Earth”
The holidays are a time of year that is heavier on our heart
And reminds us ever so gently that we are far apart
As the families gather and celebrate this holiday
Know I miss you, I love you, and think of you every day!
