my youngest said she misses me
of course i miss her too
and told her so as tears began to fill my eyes
“it’s just withdrawal from the holidays” I wrote
(the yearning filled my heart)
we were together for days, she lives so far
at least too far to jump in the car
they all do,it was a choice some 20 years ago
and now we can never go back
this i know.
the choices made,the holidays
bring more than gifts
but thank God I’ve seen another year
that we’re all here
just only miles away
just only miles away….
