A Christmas Wish
~by Terri Onorato
Lights are glowing softly
on the lush, green Christmas tree.
And candles burn with lively flames
dancing just for me.
The house is oh so quiet
as my loved ones slumber deep.
It gives me pause to think of you
before I go to sleep.
I remember your first Christmas,
you were new and quite confused.
you concluded that it had to be,
each gift was meant for you.
The contents did not matter,
be it sweater, hat or game.
As far as you were concerned my dear
Each tag spelled out your name.
I smile and recall fondly
how you humored me and wore
those silly reindeer antlers
that I found at the pet store.
But my favorite Christmas memory
that holds steadfast and true,
is the kiss you placed upon my cheek
when I said, "I love you."
My deepest wish this Christmas
your first one at Rainbow Bridge,
that you're happy and content and safe
along with all of God's bridge kids.
When Christmas morning dawns so bright
my first thought will be of you,
and right away I'll know that you
are thinking of me too.
Enjoy Christmas in Heaven,
you are Home where you belong.
Merry Christmas from us both,
we love you always….Dad and Mom.
