Christmas Fear

Everyone  is  rushing  here  and  rushing  there

Yet I  feel  empty  and  sad  and  just don’t care .

The  Christmas  spirit  has  passed  me by

Things  are  happening  that make  me want  to cry.


I feel  the  dark  dog  creeping up on  me

I am scared. trouble  ahead is  all I see.

An unguarded word  is all it can take

And  the  thin  veil of  joy  will crumble  and break.


Please let me  find  a quite  and  safe  place

Let  me  hide  and  cover  my  face.

The  knots in  my  stomach  begin to tighten.

Here comes  the black  dog  and I am frightened

    Willow, I must admit this is not my best time of year, though I don’t let many people know it. My therapist knows. 🙂 I have done pretty well and I am filled with determination to all that I can do in 2017 to walk my talk. I wish you and your family a great holiday. Hugs, Barbara
