About the Poem

Holidays can be a bitter sweet time especially if we are not with the one we love. Yet even if the miles separate us, memories can still keep us close and the best gift we can give anyone is the gift of ourselves.

This was just the poem I was looking for. It was the first one I saw and it said what I was feeling based on the situation we are both in. Thank you! Merry Christams.

I am having a long distance relationship with someone. At this time a family memeber is sick, and he is there for her taking care of her. We wanted to be together for the Holidays, but that is not to be. But he has given me his heart, which is a very special gift. That is why this poem caught my attention. It is a very nice poem. Thank you for sharing it!
Gail
What a beautiful poem. This describes exactly how I feel and what me and my love talk about. Hopefully this will be our last xmas apart.

Merry Christmas, Sweetheart!

Merry Christmas, Sweetheart
with you is where I want to be
Yet it seems our lives are complicated
for I am the one not free,

Yet the very best present
is the gift of one's self
I have given you a part of me
that has never belonged to anyone else.

So we can't be together this Christmas
yet our souls are not apart
for I have given you the best part of me
I have given you my heart.

This poem captures everything to those people who are apart from loved ones, it is also poignant for those who have loved and lost, but continue to feel love for those who are now not part of their life. Sad but true.
