This brought tears to my eyes near the end, it's sad yet touching.
Sometimes we get so caught up in life that we forget little things. Like the things that make life special, sitting with family during Christmas time and just enjoying it for what it is. This poem made me think of all the things I should be appreciating.
This touched me deeply, Dagmar. I love how you show the readers about your definition of home with simple yet beautiful imagery - the smell of pines, bells ringing etc. That part about visiting your mother's grave saddened me, yet it shows your love for her.
Thank you for sharing this.
Dag this was very touching, it is sad to think of anyone being alone on Christmas or not being in their place of home, where they should be.
The part about forgiveness is very moving because that takes a lot of courage, it makes me wonder about what you are forgiving her for, although I think i have an idea in mind, and if I am correct, this is not easy to do and is part of the healing process.
