Empty Seats

As Holiday season is about to begin,
We know that we'll gather with family and friends.

As we gather around for Holiday feasts,
There are bound to be some empty seats.

For some, it's the first time a loved one's not near,
For others, the seats have been empty for years.

They say it gets easier with the passage of time,
But their journey through loss may be different than mine.

So know if a seat sits empty this year,
Your heart may feel joy while your eyes brim with tears.

I hope that seat at your table that's bare, 
will serve as a memory and gratitude chair.

Sit down with in it and pause for a prayer,
Thankful for the love that between you was shared.

Time is so fleeting and too soon it has passed,
But Holidays are for memories and memories last.
