One Empty Chair

November 30, 2020

There are too many people with one empty chair.
So many are hurting, who need love and care.

Remember this Christmas, those no longer here.
Hold on to the memories so precious and dear.

Reach out to those near us in need of a touch.
Our small acts of kindness can bless them so much.

If we know someone hurting and feeling alone,
We can still show our love when we pick up the phone.

A card or a call, a small gift that we’ve made
Can offer some comfort and help the grief fade.

In these days social distancing’s taking its toll.
Our need for a touch comes from deep in the soul.

I pray we survive it and come out unscathed,
That expressions of love will endure and be saved.

I pray like the flowers that blossom this spring,
We’re set free to embrace, take our mask off and sing.
