You left me
It wasn't your fault
But it was something you wanted
No more pain
For you
But for the loved one you left behind
So much hurt
So much pain
Everytime Christmas comes around
I remember that day
December 19
Exactly one week before Christmas
When you were suddenly gone forever
What a horrid word
I remember the last present you gave me
It makes me cry to look at that doll
I hold the stuffed puppy from your house
Like it's the last thing I'll ever see
I remember the nativity
After you were gone
How I cried and cried
But didn't know why
I couldn't explain it
I just felt so said
You would never come back
You're death haunts me
It's one of many things I must face
Almost every night
During December
I cry myself to sleep
Or I just think
Of how it could've been different
But that would never work
Because you are gone

------- Author's Notes -------

R.I.P. Lora Anna Eliza Christina Hillers Eden ~ February 25, 1909 - December 19, 1996 I miss you.
R.I.P. Gladys Johanna Werner (Mimi) ~ November 6, 1912 - November 8, 1996 I miss you too.
My remaining great-grandparents both died of cancer when I was 6; they died about a month apart. I miss both of them dearly.
