A Christmas Wish

There’s nothing but me and the stars
Tonight.

The sky is so dark,
As it blankets the hemisphere.

My blessed moon watches over me,
Lovingly,
Tenderly;
She knows where my thoughts lie.

I exhale a deep breath,
Not knowing that I’ve been holding
It for awhile.
It turns to icy vapors as it leaves my
Lips and hangs there for a moment,
Before it disappears.

My heart aches at your memory.
So much time has passed
But the sting is still there.

You, who gave this fragile heart of
Mine, life.
A second chance at survival,
Before I shuffled off this mortal coil
Alone.

I clasp my hands together
And ask the goddess for guidance.
I ask for her help in bringing you back.

I close my eyes in quiet contemplation.
And I weave the words like spell
And ask to hear your voice once again,
Since I have long forgotten it.

Two halves of the same whole,
I am rudderless without you.
Lost in oblivion without your smile.
Adrift in a sea of confusion without
Your love.

Would that you could be here,
Watching the stars with me,
And we could talk about the little things.
Share our thoughts of the future
And reminisce about the past.

I pray to her,
My dearest goddess,
That you will find your way to me.
And back into my arms again.

Once again,
I’ll feel your shine upon my face.
Feel your warmth upon my heart.
And once again,
You’ll be mine.

This is my hope.
My dream.
My wish.

A lonely Christmas wish.
