Sometimes, when I get down and out
The only way to push it away is to shout
To the world I want you to know
That I miss my parents so
The holidays are coming soon
And as I look way up at the moon
And see the twinkle of the stars
I wonder how in fact you are
I miss you so, my heart does hurt
I wipe my tears away with my shirt
What I would not give to see you again
And go back in time to you remember when
The smiles the talk the atmosphere
Of mommy and daddy oh so dear
Another year I will spend with Al
And we will try but I know we shall
Be thinking of you and years gone by
I miss u so bad I’m wiping tears from my eye.
Take care of them God and watch ore them for me
And tell them I love them and some day it’ll be
My turn to leave everyone behind me
And Al and me will be sitting oh so near
Until the time comes that only you do know
We shall carry on, and try not to show
Our feelings we hide other days of the year
We will walk together and try to show no fear
The holidays are coming oh too soon
As I look to the skies and up to the moon
I love you mom and dad we shall be with you soon.

I felt that one!
are your parents still with you?
Father gone, mother still alive, but unfortunately, never had the relationship that you so enjoyed. I grieve that.
I am so sorry………….
What a heart tugging poem, Terry. Thank you! It reminds us that there are so many that struggle over the holiday time, missing loved ones and often alone! love and prayers!
thank you for your comment and I hope everyone appreciates the holidays this year and takes time to breathe, have fun, and enjoy the family, and always remember to give thanks to God
Yes, i miss so many family members over the holidays — mom, my aunts and uncles and even some cousins. Even though dad is here, with his Alzheimer’s i feel like the old dad is gone too. It adds a tinge of sadness to the holidays, but in fact there are many happy memories there.
I am so thankful for my memories, and I believe Al has many also, because he is worse than I am at the holidays, hiding in his room praying for the day to end, as he says……………….I am glad u have happy memories also, so many are unfortunate and do not, or not even know who their parents are
Thanks, Terry. I think our memories make us who we are. I want my children and grandchildren to know my parents and aunts and uncles through my memories of them.
Gulp. Blink, blink…Thank you for sharing such heartfelt sentiments. Blessings and happy holidays to you! xo
