I See Your Face

In every single Christmas candle lit
I see a vivid picture of your face
Framed within the halo of a quivering flame
Your eyes look back at me in warm embrace

On every Christmas tree the little lights
Remind me of the sparkle of your eye
And gazing at the tree through watered tear
I still can see our very last good-bye

Another Christmas without you near
Memory entreats another tear

Within the lovely strains of cheeful song
It's there your tender voice I often hear
It tears my heartstrings into little shreds
And silences the song I love so dear

The sight of morning white upon the lawn
A mesmerizing fire in the hearth
A glass of wine that's poured and sent my way
Tokens of another year apart

Another Christmas without your love
Countless seasons of wreath and dove

The sight of mistletoe that hangs above the door
Reminds me of a tender kiss many years ago
But my heart is sudden filled with happiness
As I recall how much I loved you so

And deep inside my heart the pleasures swell
In the thought I loved you long - and loved you well

Liz--This is so beautiful and full of your lasting love.  The heart remembers.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Elizabeth,
I would say the last two lines says it all
a lovely poem.

Martie,
Thank you very much

Sy,
Actually, that's the only part of the poem that was true, and even that is a thought that rarely comes to light. In fact, I don't know why I even wrote this thing!
Just couldn't think of anything to write
But thank you so much for your comments
Liz

Thanks, Denise, glad you like it, though it's not really true. Not since I was young, anyway. I'll call you one of these days. I drove my car for the first time today!!!
That is one thing I have missed!
Talk soon

Sometimes it's the candlelight,
That brings you into view,
And when it is, it is the time,
I hold the real, shadowed you.

 Yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream...

That you can just jot something like this down is truly the mark of an excellent poet.Salute.
