The Holiday season is when all of us feel the emotions of not having that special someone.  Just a little Christmas poem for all of us looking for that special feeling.

Missing Christmas

 

The tree is now standing.. the presents all wrapped

But the feeling isn’t Christmas..  my heart feels trapped

Its time for sharing presents, love and good cheer

But still its not Christmas, because you are not here

I have carols, stockings, and resolutions to renew

While the real Christmas feeling is waiting for you

Thank you for the differing responses to this.  It was a very nice Christmas this year.  We got snow here on the farm but just a mile in any direction from our hillside there was none.  My Facebook and MM friends gave me a ton of love and well wishes.  Thanks to all.

Very nice. I dumped two men today. I guess Im just a heartless beast. The only thing worse than not having a special someone is being with the wrong people for the wrong reasons.


How very true, Shaz. If only more people could realize that. So much better to be alone than be with the wrong people; people who don't feed your soul. I'd emphasize wrong with solid caps or an underline, but as a nonpaying member I'm not allowed that option.

Oh, Smax, how sad. At our age, Smax, we need to be so much smarter about being alone on Christmas than we were when we were young. If you are, indeed, going to be alone on Christmas, then you absolutely must focus on the advantages of that situation. For one thing, you won't have what could seem like a thousand relatives fighting with one another, and you; no sibling rivalries 4 or 5 decades old erupting just when the stuffing erupts from the turkey; no drunken neighbor dropping in to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, a neighbor with a heart of gold who is nevertheless a royal pain in the ass because he drinks too much. In other words, none of the stress that unfortunately so often goes along with family Xmas gatherings. As for not having that special someone--Christmas, for those of us who have lived through so many of them--is definitely not the time to allow ourselves to feel sorry for ourselves! In our 20's and maybe even in our 30's or 40's, we couldn't avoid the pity party on a lonely Christmas Day. But at our age, we have what it takes to turn our backs on what we lack and focus on what we have, which includes the birth of the Christ child and all the wondrous gifts He has given us. Without Him, it's quite likely we'd all still be living in societies devoid of the kind of compassion that allows us to be free and full of joy whenever we choose to. Heck--we might even all be living under Sharia Law!!! And to focus, perhaps, on things and thoughts we've been avoiding. Thoughts and feelings that tell us we need to make some changes [change??? YIKES--how scary and hateful] Thoughts, feelings, that will, if we have the courage to listen to them, move us forward during the coming year; move us toward our goals, including finding that special someone. So, Smax, wherever you'll be Christmas Day, know that Christmas is for you. Remember the true reason why we celebrate so lavishly. And revel in knowing that even if you don't have "that special one" by your side, you have "the birthday boy" on your side. And He is constant. You can't divorce Him, or get in such an awful fight with Him that you two break up. He breaks up with no one. So, if Christmas must be alone time for you, revel in all of that. You are definitely not alone. You are loved for sure. And so many of us humans here as well will be thinking of you and sending you blessings and happiness through our thoughts. Have a beautiful Christmas, Smax, one you make beautiful with the thoughts and feelings of your fine, fine heart.
