November Day Poem

Dedicated to my 89 year old Catholic friend and sponsor from AA

November Day

Christmas always brings me joy and tears
Seeing all the hurt and happy cheers
As I think of the laughter and those in pain
I think back on my life and remember the same
Not all of it is bad and not all of it is good
And I don’t always act the way that I should
But things have gotten better with you around
For inside of your heart my soul has found
Someone who cares and gives with gladness
And does what he can to relieve the sadness
Bringing a smile to my heart and mind
Lifting the darkness because you are kind
And I wish there was more I could give to you
As I appreciate the things you say and do
But inside my heart you are here to stay
Warming my spirit on this November Day
