IT IS CHRISTMAS TIME WITHOUT YOU

Posted on by Donna Sue

As His Child

It is Christmas time without you,

And I fear the silent nights,

The decorated Christmas trees,

Yards filled with Christmas lights.

 

This holiday I face alone,

The first without you here.

I could never have imagined,

You gone this time last year.

 

Stacks of Christmas cards unopened,

Pretty presents yet to give,

All the holly and the tinsel

Make this season hard to live.

 

But the tiny little manger,

With Jesus in the hay,

Gives me the strength to make it to

Another Christmas Day.
