Is the time of year

Christmas is the time of year when family should be near,
but all the miles between us, can not bring you here.
We sit around the fire with sherry and mince pies ,
thinking of the Christmas past and wondering of the time ,
that Christmas was a family time instead of distant blues,
and wondering which Christmas we will be with you.

Where dreams may just come true

img_4070Christmas day is nearly here, the tree shimmers in the background, nearly as bright as my children’s faces of joy of the things to come in the build up to Christmas.
It has just started to snow out side and the world has been transformed into a magical place where dreams may just come true.
Even though the joy is in the air, a sad tear trickles down my cheek for the dear angels that’s cannot be with us at this enchanting time of year.
As I wipe away the tear, I dream of them dancing around me in the wind, their souls join the delightful sound of Christmas carols which plays softly in the background.
Hope and joy ooze from us all, knowing in one way or another we will all be together for Christmas.
