I thought of you.
I didn’t forget.
Every moment I wished you were there.
I swear I did.
I know I only shed a few tears.
Last year I cried and cried.
But it doesn’t mean I missed you any less.
I cherish the moments someone says
“I can just hear Amanda now…”
I still wear my fun socks.
Listen to your CDs on the drive home.
Wrap myself in your sweaters.
Wait for a sign you’re near.
I know you understand.
My sadness couldn’t overflow forever,
Even if every year without you still feels unfair.
I’ll keep your candle,
Deep within my heart,
Until I see you again.
Merry Christmas T.
