I’m thinking of you

Thrown from your routine–

Where each sunrise brings purpose,

Suddenly alone

I think of you

As bags are packed–

Traffic exodus of crowds,

Silence now too loud

I think of you


Behind tears of loneliness,

Festive observer

I think of you

Who for the first time–

Must sleep on that double bed,

You always shared

I think of you

Hoping and praying–

That you will dress in seasons,

Where time comes to pass

I think of you

See your smiling face–

As you slowly realize,

I’m thinking of you

He is always thinking of you too.

  1. Loved this, Chev. Perfectly captures the loneliness many feel during the Christmas season. A young friend lost her spouse in a car accident this summer, it is the first Christmas without him for her and her kids. I read this and reached out to her. 🙂

  2. I was joking with Tracy about those sad Christmas songs that are all over the airwaves in the stores: “Please come home from Christmas,” What do the lonely do at Christmas.”
    This can be a difficult time of year for those who are forlorn.
