Miracles


I met a little girl today
who seemed to be quite sad
while shopping for a Christmas tree,
nowhere could I find ‘dad’.

She pranced around the farmer’s truck
as twilight turned to snow
but did not welcome comfort’s hand:
her eyes were not aglow

with twinkling lights, nor festive scenes,
nor smile too wide to see --
a recipe that must be felt
in wonderlands of glee.

Bright memories of seasons past
dawned then as I knelt down
to ask her which one would she like
from this lone stand in town.

She looked at me with big brown eyes
so red from heartbreak’s hold
and in her tiny face I saw
her soul, her gift – behold!

“My daddy’s gone away, missus.”
Her eyes were wrought with tears.
“He promised he’d be home this time.
He always disappears.”


I looked around and found her mom
not far from precious Grace
and realized where daddy’s gone:
'twas written in her face.

I pulled her close and whispered then
“Your dad is here; it’s true.
You see that shining star, dear Grace?
He sends his love to you.”


She gazed upon that sentient star
so high in Heaven’s Light
and then I knew she understood
the miracle this night.

Hello jacantina and welcome to MM. wave.gif

Thank you very much for your kind words. I'm thrilled to learn that my poetry not only moved you but also let you feel the spirit of Christmas. xmastree.gif ornament.gif present.gif candle.gif stocking.gif

It's easy to forget all the miracles we realize each and every day. Here's wishing you more miracles than you can wish for.

Happy Holidays!
