A Christmas Poem

I see the countless Christmas trees, around the world below.
With tiny lights, like heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow.


The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear.
For I'm spending Christmas,with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs, that people hold so dear.
But the sounds of music can't compare,with the Christmas choir up here.

For I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring.
For it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.

I can't tell you of the splendor, or the peace here in this place.
Can you just imagine Christmas, with our Savior, face to face?

I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart,
But I'm not so far away, we really aren't apart.

So be happy for me dear ones, you know I hold you dear,
And be glad I am spending Christmas, with Jesus Christ this year.

Please love and keep each other, as the Father said to do, 
For I cannot count the blessings, or the love He has for you.

So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear,
Remember I am spending Christmas, with Jesus Christ this year.

Been thinking of you a lot and the emptiness you feel. The poem was so beautifully written with such an understanding of what it must be like for Cannon. It has been 15 years for me. The emptiness is still there, but the plan of salvation healed my heart. Cannon is so proud of you and can't wait to share his experiences with you.
