This Christmas

As a gift for my family this Christmas, I wrote a poem. I started writing from my own heart and ended, I believe, writing from God's. I love you family!!!

This Christmas
I breathe you in and hold you there
Effusive warmth and effervescent mirth
My eyes brim with crystals
When you dance through my mind
We clasp hands, link arms at the elbow
Place palms at the small of our backs
I lift you up as you hold me aloft
With whispered shouts of supplication
If love can with words be painted
I seek to dip my pen daily in crimson
So you will know that I see you, feel you from miles away.
This heart string strung between these nine beating hearts
Plucked by the hand of God, fingers singing every note
A harmony birthed from the gossamer realm
The refrain returns to earth ever repeating
This family is mine.
