The hum is all around me
Everywhere it seems – at work, in the stores, and on the street that I live.
Everywhere - but home.
It’s quiet here; there is no hum;
Everyone has gone – my mother, my loved one, my friend – passed or just moved on.
No one here – but me.
The holiday hum is getting louder
Someone is reaching out – a card, a hug and love – turkey with the clan
A Christmas wish – come true.
We all know that the holidays can be the best of times and the worst of times for those who are experiencing sadness, loss, upheaval or loneliness. The very best gift we can give is of ourselves – giving our time, and sharing our love and expressions of kindness and gratitude.
And it doesn’t have to cost a cent, shilling, peso, franc, mark, or rupee. Let's squish the hum bug!
