Christmas Wish

And then came the part where he asks the congregation

to join him in a moment of

silent

private prayer

A prayer between the exhausted individual

and God

I was reminded to remember

the sick

the lonely

the ones who can’t come home for the holidays

A private moment

like a secret, I thought to myself

My soul smiled and flew to you

Not sick not lonely but so far away from me

It’s your love that flooded in

Tomorrow’s Christmas

And I miss you

I said a prayer for you

a quick one ‘cause I’m not a woman who prays

Something about your happiness …

and mine

That sweet little church

those songs

have completely warmed me from the inside out

Merry Christmas, baby
