christmas memories, written by Toni L.A. Cross 12/1/09

so many memories

this time of year

remembering

the good and bad

loved ones

now so far away

 

they pull at me

surrounding me

drowning me in yesterdays

will I succumb

and spend my tomorrow

in what’s already done?

 

so many memories

this time of year

remembering

the good and bad

loved ones

now so far away

 

they dance about

tugging my heart

filling me with bittersweet

will I escape

and spend right now

in my before?

 

keeping memories

this time of year

and making more

the good and bad

loved ones

near and far, old and new
