An Empty Place

Lord, there will be an empty place at the Christmas table.

And I'm not able to face it alone

Please pass a second helping of Your Grace

I can't seem to get enough of it these days

The lights on the tree are all a blur

As I look through swollen eyes

The carols catch in my throat

Wise men and shepherds

Angels and stars

Christmas cards, candles, and gifts

They all used to move me

But this year I'm scarred

By wounds too fresh to heal

I'm scarred by what I feel~~Haunting Memories

Good ones

But regrets too,

Too many tears

Too few tissues

Too many days in December

And all because the one I love is dead

And so is my heart. And I'm so afraid of what still lies ahead.Please remind me that Easter

And all that it promises

Will soon be here

Dear God, maybe by then I can celebrate

The good tidings of Christmas

In spite of this empty chair.
