In darkened chambers where I pray for "him."
As twilight leans toward the rising sun,
My imagination greets my special "one."
He's tall and strong, with eyes roaming free,
Awakening eternity in his love for me.
Under the mistletoe, he imparts sweet bliss,
Awakening my senses to his gentle kiss.
Searching underneath the tinseled tree,
He finds the free gift he gives to me.
I open his present, unlocking surprise,
To see forever in his devoted eyes.
Then it hits, December tears.
Waiting and hoping through the years.
What remains is faith and hope,
And His strength to once again cope.
Praying next year brings greater gain,
While my husband, my Lord heals the pain.
