Christmas Eve Wishes

Accidental Poet


You were the one

 Who changed my life

And I was the one who

Saw you as a forever wife


But it didn’t turn out that way

And I never expected it to

That don’t mean that I

Stopped dreaming of you


Cause every year you’ve been

On my Christmas wish list

To see you and hear your sweet voice

It’s you Sharon I’ll always miss


Now again it’s Christmas Eve

And you’re on my mind

Can’t help but think of you

With love it happens every time


We all make Christmas wishes

Sometimes they even come true

And mine go out every year

Hoping that yours will too

    A powerful write A.P. - Such a heart-tugging read this piece of raw longing for time to go backwards when Christmas comes round - a pathos-touched ode yet clearly showing that love can still hope.

      Thanks Fay, it's always been my hope that I'd see Sharon again, but never an expectation. She was my first and will be my last love.

        Merry Christmas.

              Beautiful poem. Sharon must be a very special lady. I couldn't help but notice Karen Carpenter's Marry Christmas Darling. It is my favorite Christmas carol of them all.

              • Accidental Poet

                Thank you Jeannie, yes Sharon is a very special lady. I haven't seen her since 1971 @ 14 years old (and I'm now 66), but she made her first impact on me @ 10 years old on the first day of school in fifth grade September 6, 1967. I've no idea where she is today, but I know I've been blessed to know this love for her. Some think it's sad, but I don't. Reminds me of one poem I wrote near the beginning of my poetry here of "Let Love Leed the Way". Thanks again. Have a great day.
