A Christmas Promise

It keeps me sane
To know that I will see them again –
Those I’ve loved and lost along life’s way;
They gave me so much,
I yearn for their voice,
Their touch in my day.
I miss their laughter, their love,
But above all,
I know they’re safe –
Waiting somewhere on an unseen plane
Until we meet again.
I’ve stored beautiful memories
I can see anytime,
These are always mine.
I can conjure their smiles
And familiar words pop into my mind
That remind me they lived;
With no thought at all I can recall.
I live in the present and I love my life
But the life that I have is not all that I am,
I am the sum of all that is past,
The here and now and then at last
The future of what will be.
So when I lie down at night
To recite my prayers
I know they’re safe,
Waiting somewhere on an unseen plane
Until we meet again.
