My Journey w/ Grief - First Christmas

First Christmas

First Christmas

No Nathan
to buy for
to wake up
to watch
to enjoy

presents not bought
a stocking not hung
a bed not slept in

we awakened to excruciating sorrow
grief brutally attacks us from beneath the tree
anguish mocks us from an empty chair
Christmas forever changed
