Seasonal Spirit

I lost my dear Dad six years ago today and he is my heart wherever I go. I’m not a huge Christmas fan but Dad loved this time of year and so at the weekend I made myself put our quirky tree up this year in honour of Dad. Almost as soon as I put the tree up, I felt brighter. That’s Dad working his magic up there!

Bright Light

I miss you at this time of year

I miss you more than ever

You always brought that Christmas cheer

Still dazzled through dark weather

I miss your optimistic heart

Your helpful thoughts; protection

Your empathy was off the charts

Personified affection

I miss you and I always will

Sometimes it just needs saying

Your gentle ways full of good will

On reels within still playing

You loved me just for being me

I know, no use in pining

And so tonight I’ll dress the tree

In honour of your shining
