Two Together

I got lost in a moment,

watching you hook a worn

but treasured ornament

on our little Christmas tree.

I fell into thoughts of all 

the holidays we have been 

a family of two, together

in this home. I let myself 

imagine those pajama-clad 

children padding toward us

on Christmas morning,

those little ones we longed

to have, but I am sad for 

only the briefest of moments

as I see you, your gentle

smile and easy manner,

your kindness, and I am

nestled into our love,

the graciousness of our 

God, and I am smiling back

as your eyes rest on me;

you know what I am thinking— 

we have said all of those words 

so many times.  You nod

and we continue to dress-up 

this tree, our family beginning 

this new holiday season, two 

together, settled and thankful.
