Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 387: ‘Faith for the Holidays’ A Poem: ‘Romance for the Holidays’ by Rg2 (28) Vol. VI

02 Dec


“Faith for the Holidays”

I realize it’s easy to give up on romance
In the midst of the current political climate,
As biblical predictions seemingly unfold
My savior’s coming—I won’t dare try to time it

I just know… I feel something within and without
Deep down, woman, admit it, might you, too?
Could it be that we’ve lost faith in one another
In a house divided, the winners are so few

What’s worse? A heart divided into two, three
Fragments of what once was a precious whole,
Scattered are they beneath the ornate tree
Deserving we are of a stocking’s lump of coal

A soul handled wrong for so very long
Loses its content becomes a soul on ice,
Love, I want not my spirit to lose its song
Some soul-searching for the holidays will suffice

It to say I need a friend who deeply cares
To help me discover what Christmas truly means,
The jewels and the gadgets and all the pretty wares
Do they have a place in our nativity scenes?

Or is it about a simple brown-paper package
Butterfly-tied with a simple, soft string,
Inside, a thin tome of romantic scripture
Written just for you—good tidings I bring

We’ll un-layer this holiday to its bare essence
Hum with me some carols and spiritual hymns,
The kettle’s filled with hot cinnamon apple cider
The Noble Fir is eager for us to dress its limbs

I realize it’s easy to give up on romance
But I refuse to allow you to feel such a way,
Discover with me the true meaning of Christmas
It’s beginning to look a lot like … Pamper-Her-Friday.



Romance lives. -Rg2
