Christmas without you

Joan and Annette

Christmas just wont be the same

Remembering this time last year

When we were all together

I wish you both were still here

It is  just the little things

That cause the biggest pain

Like making out my present list

And not adding your names

Christmas shopping Friday mornings

Then coffee at the square

I just can’t do it any more

Knowing you’re not there

My tears they fall more frequently

Today I cried and cried

When I remembered last Christmas

The last before you died

I miss the sound of your voices

The way we laughed at silly jokes

Sleepovers at Mammy’s

With Pringles, wine and smokes

I miss our breakfast mornings

Deciding where to go

For our weekend getaway

It all seems so long ago

There’s no party this Christmas

No booking hotels or trains

No shopping for glitzy dresses

It will never be the same

You wont be here for Christmas

We won’t all be together

But I’ll be thinking of you everyday

And I’ll miss you both forever. ❤
