In the stillness of the night
I sit and try to think of something to write.
Tried all the tricks that I've been taught,
Prompts and routine are all for naught.
Tonight all that comes to mind
Are the troubles of various kind.
Bills that never seem to be paid.
The loved on that to rest is laid.
The friend having cancer cut out,
The only gift wanted, no doubt.
So here it is, Christmas in ten days,
And I sit here in a dark, dreary haze.
It's not that I don't have joy in my heart,
But that sometimes I don't know where to start.
So tonight I'll leave you with this little note;
Take your time to on others dote.
Make a memory, the moments are few
Never miss a chance to say, "I love you"
For I love you, every one
I'll try again with the new sun. <3
