Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Twas the day before Christmas
and all I can see
are images of Bubbe
spread out before me.

The stockings are hung
by the stairway with care
but his little stocking
is no longer there.

I miss his sweet face
and his loving eyes
especially in the kitchen
when I was baking a pie.

Waldo the basset
is my biggest fan,
but now on this day
I think of the Old Man.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all! I'll be back on the blog after January 1, 2008.

What lovely words, and I know just what you mean.

I hope you managed to enjoy Christmas as far as possible. I'm glad that our 'boys' are undoubtedly happy, content, and pain-free - however much we miss them....
