Loss in the Holidays

Dealing with loss in the holiday season
leaves me adrift in a sea of joy and grief.

Wanting to celebrate the beauty,
but sadness striking as one’s missing.
Waves of joy and waves of grief
crash one onto the other.

Mixed emotions are to be expected,
and accepted as part of the process.

In time, these waves of joy will lengthen
and these waves of grief will shorten,
but until then I rest in remembering
the memories and emotions of it all.

The one I love, the one I dearly miss
is always with me for where love is,
love was, love always will be.

I understand love because God first loved me.
I feel love because it’s alive in this season;
I am this love when I give to another.

My loved one now sings with the angels.
Christ was born to redeem all into His love,
bringing comfort in the midst of my loss.

The Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor.
God is all I need; He’ll get me through.

In His presence, in His love, I find my rest; I celebrate.
Hark the herald angels sing glory to the newborn King.

Who makes all things new;
death is not the end; eternity awaits.

Those with eyes, let him see.
Those with ears, let him hear.
