My first thought was flippant, “Of all the things I miss the most, I miss my mind.” An oldy but a goody. Snickers loudly.
For many, Christmas is a time of family, friends, togetherness, sharing and involvement.
This ode is for those who have someone missing.
I look for you and you’re not there
A distant memory now filled with care
Oh how we loved laughed and joked
Moments in time quickly evoked
By songs or artists equally shared
A shadow of your smile lingers, flared
Long since forgotten any contretemps
Only distant thoughts of attempts
Memories made to warm the hearts
Gathered together like puzzle parts
Placed together to form a picture
Complete with form and structure
A delightful moment in time together
All the more special such an adventure
To be recalled upon a moment’s notice
Your presence in my life a bonus
You will never go missing my friend
For recollections of you forever penned
In songs and games and many refrains
Long remembered you shall remain
