No Christmas 

by Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher -Ferris

Christmas forgot me this year

No tree no lights

No gifts to wrap 

No presents to unwrap 


Sitting beneath the stars 

The night cold 

The darkness endless 

The void calls my name 


Voice deep in my heart 

A memory of childhood delight

A sense of Christmases past

A past time of jubilant excitement 


Loved ones from heights above 

Touch my mind

Touch memories lost

Touch heartache forever sustained 


The peace of Christmas 

Lay in the stars

Lay on the Earth

Lay in my heart


Christmas forgot me this year

I do not need a tree

I do not need to wrap presents

I do not need gifts to unwrap


Christmas – I will never forget You
