WHILE CAROLS PLAY

by Nancy

Tears

Her sadness
Mine

She clings
I hold tightly

No words

She trusts the one her soul loves

A last sniffle
She moves away

Tender her smile

I know the one my soul loves

Pen taken
Writing her name
Though she wills mine
Alongside
On each Christmas card

It hurts her
Me

Still
And real
Love shines
In this dark moment

Our love is peace
Living
Deepening
While carols play
