    fifty six  christmases

    and it matters more than
    ever that Christ is born again
    in the carols round the tree
    in the sharing of meals
    in the gift-wrapped bits of love
    in the quiet streets of the city
    in the empty chair at the table
    in the ache of growing
    and knowing too much
    in the memories that hang
    on the tree and in my heart
    more than ever this year
    I need Jesus to be born

      You hang in there. We all ache, and your sweet poetry makes it all safer, saner and less alone.
